Gbajabiamila issued the threat on Thursday at plenary while reacting to a letter by Emefiele, informing the House of its inability to honour the invitation of the House to appear before an ad-hoc Committee set up by the House to interface with the apex bank and commercial banks on the deadline for the phase-out of the old notes.
