A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Idu Igariweh, has tasked the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu  Dogara, to reflect the spirit of federal character and fairplay when constituting the various standing committees of the House.

The PDP lawmaker who represents Afikpo North/South Federal Constituency of Ebonyi said in an interview in Abuja on Tuesday that  only a fair representation can forestall possible rancour among members.

According to him, fairness was necessary in order to sustain the already existing peace in the House.

He added that no room should be created for disaffection among members on assumption from its current recess in September 29.

“I want to believe that if the speaker allows himself to be guided by the spirit of fairplay in the distribution of various offices, the prediction of doomsayers may not come to pass,” he said.
