The decision, Igbere TV learnt, followed a resolution by the House Committee in charge of these agencies.

Addressing
newsmen on Thursday, in Abuja, Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Yusuf
Buba, said the agencies are to appear before the House on Monday, August
19, 2019.

According to him, the Committee resolved to take the
action as the Chief Executives failed to honour the invitation to appear
before it for an investigative public hearing.

The public
hearing, Igbere TV gathered, was on the need to determine why the Warri,
Port Harcourt, Calabar, Onne and Onitsha inland complexes are not being
put into maximum use.

Buba said it was an important matter and that the Committee would not let any individual or group treat it with levity.

He said the lawmakers were determined to get to the root of the matter and ensure the ports operated to full capacity.
