The House of Representatives on Friday resolved to investigate the appointment of the Director-General of the Raw Materials Research and Development Council (RMRDC), Prof. Martins Ike-Muonso.

The lower legislative chamber will also investigate the appointment of the Director-General of the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) Dr. Mathew Adepoju.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Science Research, Olaide Akinremi, disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

The House has therefore set up a six-member panel headed by Hon. Abiodun Akinlade to carry out the probe.

Akinremi said Ike-Muonso and Adepoju were recently appointed by the Minister of Innovation Science and Technology, Chief Uche Nnanji.
