The House of Representatives ad-hoc committee investigating alleged job racketeering and mismanagement of IPPIS by federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) has threatened to invoke the provisions of the constitution to compel heads of MDAs to appear before it.

In a statement today, the chairman of the committee, Yusuf Gagdi accused the heads of MDAs of frustrating the work of the committee aimed at correcting imbalances in the public service of the federation.
