The House of Representatives will tomorrow debate the allegations of impropriety levelled against three of its members by the United States.

Hon. Mohammed Garba Gololo (Bauchi,APC),Hon. Samuel Ikon (Akwa-Ibom,APC) and Hon Mark Gbillah (Benue,APC) were fingered as having behaved inappropriately while on a leadership training in Cleveland, Ohio, United States.

The three lawmakers involved in the incident are scheduled to address the press today.

Speaker Yakubu Dogara yesterday evening on Twitter said if there was no evidence, no action would be taken against the accused lawmakers

The Speaker said: “ We closed that discussion yesterday. We await the evidence before any action is taken in line with our laws.”

The Chairperson, House Committee on Foreign Affairs Hon. Nnena Elendu Ukeje, told The Nation at the weekend said the scandal should not sour the relationship between Nigeria and the United States.

Ukeje said: “We will deal with the matter institutionally in such a way that controls the domestic fallout of this weighty allegation and ensure a continued cordial relationship between the institution and the people and the government of the United States, and the two democratic nations.

“As the Speaker has said, the House shall carry out its own investigations into the matter. It is an institutional thing between the legislature of the republic of Nigeria and the government of United States.

“The initial intendment was an exchange programme to help deepen our democratic practices. We will have this investigation so as to mitigate the domestic fallout so,it does not jeopardise the relationship that parliament has with the United States.”
