The House of Representatives has summoned the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to explain why it awarded a N6.5billion Ayetoro shoreline protection contract without monitoring its implementation.

A construction firm, Gallet Nigeria Limited and Dredging Atlantic Limited (DAL), will also appear before the House Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), when constituted to explain its role on the Ayetoro Shoreline Protection contracts.

The lawmakers’ decision on Wednesday followed the adoption of a motion by Kolade Victor Akinjo (PDP, Ondo) who regretted that despite the commitment by the Federal Government, the contractors handling the embankment project refused to live up to expectation.

He said: “As at today September 30, 2015, almost all Ilaje communities occupying the Atlantic coastline are flooded (overrun) due to water from tempestuous oceanic surge.

“These communities include Ayetoro, Ori-Oke Iwamimo, Seja Odo, Seja Oke, Lepe, Yaye, Olotu, Idiogba, Gbabijo, Erunona and Magbenwa among several others.
