Minister and House Committee Clash Over Alleged Corruption

On Tuesday afternoon, a heated debate erupted between Minister of Women Affairs Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye and the House Committee on Women Affairs and Social Development, led by Kafilat Ogbara. The committee summoned Kennedy-Ohanenye to address allegations of N1.5 billion being diverted from funds earmarked for contractor payments.

Contractors had petitioned the committee, claiming they were not paid for completed projects. The session quickly escalated into a shouting match, with accusations flying between committee members and the minister. Committee member Marie Ebikake accused Kennedy-Ohanenye of sidelining ministry staff, prompting a fiery response from the minister, who denied the allegations and demanded a retraction.

The exchange continued, with committee chair Ogbara cautioning Kennedy-Ohanenye against interrupting members. The heated back-and-forth underscored the tension surrounding the investigation into the alleged corruption within the Ministry of Women Affairs.
