The House of Representatives has started investigations into the termination of the contract between Integrated Logistics Services (Intels) and the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
During Wednesday's plenary, the House of Representatives asked NPA and the AGF to reverse the decision and resolved to investigate the circumstances around the contract termination.
But INTELS' Spokesperson, Bolaji Akinola, alleged that the management of NPA deliberately frustrated attempts to address the issues raised by the introduction of the TSA in the execution of its pilotage agency agreement.
The NPA boss told newsmen on Monday in Lagos that the contract was terminated on the advice of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Malam Abubakar Malami.
Hassan Saleh, another PDP lawmaker from Benue State, said it was curious that the authorities did not request for a renegotiation of the contract terms, rather than an outright termination.
His motion read partly, "The House notes that Intels secured foreign loans to finance the construction and operation of the Apapa, Warri and Port Harcourt port terminals".
Samuel Arabo, also of PDP, from Kaduna State, said there was more than meets the eye in the decision to terminate the contract.
Duoye, raising the motion, had said the House needed to ascertain if the termination of the contract constituted a breach of law.
