The sacked and embattled ex-Chairman of Appropriation Committee of House of Representatives, Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin, has ridiculed the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, and other principal officers whom he accused of budget padding, for running to high places to look for cover and soft landing over the allegation.
Jibrin added that the EFCC and ICPC must arrest Dogara, Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, House Whip Alhassan Doguwa, Minority Leader Leo Ogor and the other members he mentioned in his petition.
Jibrin has so far raised more than 20 allegations on Speaker Dogara. In another set of allegations which he posted on his Facebook wall, he asked: “Why did you, Speaker Yakubu Dogara, allow several wasteful procurement of items that are already available in members’ offices, just to steal money?”
He also alleged that Dogara having connived with Hon. Mohammed Bago to organise a scam in the name of investigative hearing on NIMASA, where over 1,000 companies were put on notice and invited, saying that it is non-existential for parliament to invite 1,000 companies in the name of investigation. He added that this could happen only under Speaker Dogara’s watch.
