Dogara must go down

Former Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Monday, said he would be visiting some anti-graft agencies in a bid to substantiate his allegation of budget padding against the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers of the Green Chamber.

The former Appropriations committee chairman had recently accused the Speaker, Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun, Chief Whip, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, and the Minority Leader, Leo Ogor, of attempting to pad N40bn into the 2016 budget.

Jibrin, who took to his twitter handle, @AbdulAbmj, said his aim of visiting the various anti-corruption agencies is to ensure that Dogara and the other principal officers are brought to justice.

According to the former Chairman, he will fully cooperate with investigators to enable them understand the depth of budget fraud and abuse of office by the Speaker.

He wrote: “We will be at the ICPC 10am, DSS 12noon, EFCC 2pm and Police HQ 4pm. The law will surely catch up with the corrupt Speaker Dogara and others.

“My lawyers have confirmed my appointments for today with security and anti corruption agencies to personally provide insight on my petition.”

Jibrin, while giving an insight into his petition, said his case against the Speaker and others include, “corrupt enrichment, abuse of office and public trust, living above means, massive movement of funds in the budget.

“Our petition to the EFCC and ICPC against Speaker Dogara, Lasun, Doguwa, Ogor and eight other members have been dispatched yesterday,” he added.
