Chairman House Committee on Information Mr. Aminu Zakari (APC Gwiwa) disclosed this while speaking to newsmen.

He explained that the members were suspended with a view to allow for fair investigations into allegations of financial misconduct.

“Both the members allegedly attempt to retrieve some financial documents from the ministry of finance to prevent the Committee of investigation set by the house to investigate financial misappropriation between 2017 and 2018,” he stated.
