14 October 2015, Abuja – The House of Representatives has resolved to probe the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan on the sale of power assets.

The House in a resolution on the motion titled, “Alleged Non-transparent and Fraudulent Sale of Power Assets by the Bureau of Public Enterprise, BPE, ” by the Jonathan’s administration, bemoaned the what it called lack of openness in the processes leading to the sale of Nigeria’s power infrastructure to private investors by the previous administration.

The sponsor of the motion, Rep. John Chike Okafor representing Ehime Mbano/Ihitte Uboma/Obowo Federal Constituency of Imo State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the House of Representatives in his lead debate stressed the importance of power to every business, family, public or private institution, household and the general growth of the nation’s economy.
