Nigeria: Capital Market Probe Report Ready Next Week - Committee

Rep. Ibrahim El-Sudi, the Chairman, House of Representatives Ad hoc Committee on the Probe of the Capital Market said on Thursday in Abuja that the report would be presented to the House next week.

El-Sudi (PDP-Taraba), who did not give a specific day for the presentation, told newsmen that the committee requested for some vital documents from the CBN, AMCON and SEC, but was unable to get them.

He said the committee would go ahead to present the report to the House whether or not the agencies forwarded the documents to it before the 24 hours given to them expired on Friday.

Mr. S. Onekutu, the CBN Director of Legal Services, had said in a letter to the committee that Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi would respond to the committee's request when he returned from South Africa.

"I am constrained to inform the Honourable Chairman of the Ad hoc committee that the Governor and other members of the board of the bank are currently attending a retreat in South Africa, and would not be back in office until next week.

"In the circumstances, we urge the committee to permit the Governor to respond to the committee's request as soon as he is back from his official trip outside the country."
