We didn’t order Patience Jonathan’s account unlocked – Reps

The House of Representatives has denied reports that it ordered any bank to unlock  the accounts of the former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

The House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, stated this through his twitter handle on Wednesday.

Chairman of the House Public Petitions committee, Uzoma Nkem-Abonta (Abia-PDP) had reportedly directed six banks to allow the former first lady access to her accounts frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Reacting, Gbajabiamila said the House had not taken a decision on the matter.

He, however, said the report of the committee will be debated when the House resumes next week.

“Contrary to reports, the House has not made a decision on freezing of bank accts. The c’ttee report will be debated on resumption,” he tweeted.
