Embattled former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumuni Jibrin, has said President Muhammadu Buhari will ban Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun and two others from visiting the Presidential Villa if the level of corruption they engaged in are fully exposed.

In a statement released on Monday entitled: "the Corrupt Speaker Yakubu Dogara and his 3-man cabal," Jibrin raised a series of allegations against the principal officers including Minority Leader, Leo Ogor and Chief Whip, Garba Alhassan.

He said his allegations should be investigated and the extent of corruption ascertained before the House undertakes to probe the budget padding saga he triggered last week.

The statement reads in part: "Honourable colleagues and fellow Nigerians, I wish to make further revelations.

"Speaker Yakubu Dogara and his senior cabal namely Deputy Speaker Lasun, Whip Doguwa and Minority leader Ogor have promoted corruption so badly in the House that if President Muhammadu Buhari with his disdain for corruption and corrupt people have the slightest idea, he will ban the quartet permanently from the Villa before they eventually allow for proper and unbiased investigation by the House.

"Mr. Speaker and Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun diverted millions of naira all in the name of paying for guest houses and official residence. The issue became so messy that the Deputy Speaker openly accused Hon. Herma Hembe of short changing them of millions of naira in the deal to the shock of many Hon. Members.

"Speaker Yakubu Dogara frequently abuse his office amounting to conflict of interest by soliciting for inappropriate favours from agencies and Multinational companies. He forced an agency to grant loans and a construction company blackmailed to do some work at his Asokoro 'plot.'

"Speaker Yakubu Dogara has carefully designed a scheme to scam Hon. Members through deduction from their salaries certain amount of money for a so called mortgage arrangements to build houses for members. He has been applying every under hand tactics to ensure members agree to the deal.

"Speaker Yakubu Dogara has consistently refused members access to the financial dealings and internal budget of the House. He runs the financial management of the House like a cult aided and abated by the Chairman, House Services, Hon. Babanlle Ila. It is no longer news that all over the House, Hon. Members are aware of the monumental fraud perpetrated by Speaker Yakubu Dogara in this regard.

"We are even told that this is child's play compared to the mess and allegations of money laundering he left behind as Chairman, House Services in both the 6th and 7th Assembly. The EFCC should have something to start working with in respect of his tenure as Chairman House Services, if they properly dust their files.

"I am therefore once again calling on Hon. Colleagues and well meaning Nigerians to prevail on Speaker Yakubu Dogara and his 3 other cohorts to put the interest of country first and allow the House to conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations on them.

"This is just the tip of an ice bag. I will make further revelations in due course."
