The House of Representatives has passed a vote of no confidence in the Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
The lawmakers took the decision on Thursday in Abuja after the minister failed to attend a debate on steel development in Nigeria.
The decision followed a motion sponsored by the Leader of the House, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila (Lagos State).
They equally passed a vote of no confidence in the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, who was also absent at the gathering.
The failure of the two ministers sparked an outrage on the part of members of the Lower Chamber who resolved to set up an investigative committee to probe the Ajaokuta Steel Complex.
Mrs Adeosun, however, wrote to the lawmakers, saying she was driving to the nation’s capital from Kaduna State and would be there by 4pm.
