The All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftains are expected to explain their roles in the alleged award of the contract of securing the Nigerian Waterways to an Israeli firm, HLSI Firm Security and Technology.
The invitation, a source close to the Committee told Vanguard that it was based on a petition sent to the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, by 10 Civil Society Organisations, CSOs, citing security implications, if a foreigner is given the right to secure the Nigerian Waterways. 

Last Thursday, members of the Committee cautioned the Federal Government and all other parties involved in the planned $195 million concessioning of Nigeria’s Waterways to private entities to stay action, pending the outcome of its investigation into the matter.
Chairman of the Committee, Uzoma Abonta, (PDP, Abia) made this revelation, following conclusion of arrangements by his Committee to commence investigation into a petition before the House, asking for a thorough probe into the processes surrounding moves to give the management and security of Nigeria’s Waterways to an Israeli security firm, despite the existence of statutory Agencies like the Nigerian Navy and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA.
About 10 CSOs petitioned the Speaker of the House of Representatives over the alleged $195 million security contract awarded to an Israeli firm to patrol Nigerian Waters, by the Rotimi Ameachi-led Ministry of Transportation, as well as the Ministry of Defence.
