There was a mild drama on Tuesday before the House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee probing employment racketeering in the Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies MDAs and gross mismanagement of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System sitting in Abuja as a Commissioner of the Federal Character Commission (FCC), Mr Moses Anaughe, said his boss, the Chairman of the Commission, Mrs Muheeba Dankaka, lied to the Committee that she was sick
Mr Anaughe, who is the Commissioner representing Delta State, in the Commission openly told the Committee at the Commencement of the hearing that the Chairman was lying to the Committee that she was sick just to avoid the investigation as she was presently at the office attending to her official duties
The Chairman of the Commission, Muheeba Dankaka, had sent a team of Commissioners led by Mr Armayau Abubakar, the Taraba State Commissioner, to represent her at the Committee under the pretext that she was indisposed and had to be attended to by her doctors.
The drama however unfolded when Mr Anaughe, who came in after the proceedings had commenced, raised his hand to be identified and when he was acknowledged, openly told the committee that the Chairman’s representatives were lying and that she was in her office and not sick as claimed.
However the Committee being Chaired by Hon Yusuf Gagdi admitted the representatives of the Chairman on Oath and directed her to appear in person on Wednesday when she would answer to all the issues at stake.
