10 July 2014, Abuja – The House of Representatives Wednesday raised a seven-man Ad-Hoc Committee to investigate the roles of petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke and Anglo-Dutch oil giants, Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) over the alleged illegal sale of Oil Mining Licence (OML 29).
The Panel which will be chaired by Hon. Aminu Suleiman (Kano/APC) has other members as Hon. Babatunde Adejare (Lagos/APC), Hon. Irona Alphonsus Gerald (Imo/PDP), Hon. Binta Maigari Bello (Gombe/PDP), Hon. Ismaila Ahmed Gadaka (Yobe/APC), Hon. Umaru Haliru Aliero (Kebbi/PDP) and Hon. Sunday Akpodiogaga Emeyese (Delta/PDP).
Deputy Speaker, Emeka Ihedioha constituted the panel Wednesday following a House resolution last month which indicated that Shell and other oil majors may have hidden under the cover of waivers usually granted by the petroleum minister to embark on the sale of OML 29 and others.
