Members of the House of Representatives are to begin investigation into the procurement processes of various government’s ministries, departments and agencies over “serial” breach of  the extant law on procurement.
To this end, a number of agencies have already been summoned by the House’s procurement committee, headed by Rep Wole Oke, who described the situation as a serious one.
Oke said at the weekend that such investigation was imperative to save the situation and prevent future breaches of the law that cost the country trillions of naira.
The listed agencies, billed to appear in batches, include Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Industrial Training Fund (ITF), defence ministry comprising the army, navy and the air force, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Nigeria Prison Service (NPS).
