Yakubu Dogara, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, in the build-up to forthcoming general election, has changed chairpersons of some of the House committees in the House.
The announcement, which was made on Wednesday, shows that Abdulmumin Jibrin, former appropriations committee chairman now has a new portfolio. He heads the committee on land transport.
Jibrin, a former ally of Dogara later fell out with the speaker. He was suspended for over one year from the House for accusing the Dogara leadership of manipulating the 2016 budget.
Other new chairpersons of committees are Orker Jev, FCT; Edward Pwajok, Rules and Business; and Muntari Dandutse; FCT Judiciary.
