The House of Representatives’ Public Accounts Committee has summoned former and current director general of National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Paul Orhi and Mojisola Adeyeye respectively to appear before it Tuesday next week.
Chairman of the committee, Oluwole Oke gave the directive on Wednesday in Abuja following NAFDAC’s inability to render 2009 to 2013 Accounts.
Orhii had informed the committee that he did not come prepared adding that he only got to know about the meeting through the current director general of the agency and due to the respect he had for the committee, he had to attend the meeting.
In order to ensure a fair hearing, the committee chairman asked Orhii to liaise with the accounting department of the agency to enable him have access to account document having left the agency for years.
The committee to this regard charged NAFDAC to render detailed 2009 – 2013 audit reports and provide all relevant documents to it when appeared next week Tuesday.
According to Mr. Oke, it is unheard of for an agency not to render accounts for four years.
