15 June 2012, Sweetcrude, Abuja – The House of Representatives this morning called on the Federal Government to march words with actions by implementing the report of its adhoc committee on Subsidy Management.

Addressing members of the House during Friday’s plenary, the Speaker, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal maintained that the reports of the adhoc committee remained valid and should be implemented to the letter irrespective of bribery allegations levelled against members of the committee.

He reiterated that the House would not be cowed even as it would  not condone corrupt practices from any of its members. He stated that allegations of bribery against some of the members of  lower chamber will serve as impetus for the House to do more in its oversight functions.
