Sacked Chairman of House of Representatives committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has released another statement. Read below…
“Yesterday we recorded huge success in our mission to get the Corrupt Speaker of the House Yakubu Dogara and his cohorts to face prosecution. On the request of my lawyers, the security agencies have promptly protected the appropriation secretariat, my office and house. Our petition to the EFCC and ICPC against Speaker Dogara, Lasun, Doguwa, Ogor and eight other members have been dispatched yesterday.
The case against them ranges from corrupt enrichment, abuse of office&public trust, living above means, massive movement of funds in budget. The members are Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, Whip Alhassan Doguwa and Minority Leader Leo Ogor. Others include, chairman FCT Hon Herma Hembe, Chairman higher education Hon Zakari Mohammed, chairman health Hon Chike Okafor Chairman power Hon Dan Asuquo, Chairman marine transport Hon mohammed Bago, Chairman Police Hon Haliru Jika, Chairman interior Hon Jagaba Adams Jagaba and Chairman House services Hon Babanle Ila This is a defining moment in the struggle to cleanse the House,first time a member will drag 12 of his colleagues to the anti graft agencies.
This has opened a rare opportunity for the anti corruption agencies to decisively use this as a case study to send powerful signal. I also responded to another show of shame by 9 out of the 40member appropriation committee that addressed the press yesterday. They shamelessly allow themselves to be used after collecting $20,000 dollars each disbursed by DCOS to Speaker Hon CID Maduabum. Read my full response on both my private and public Facebook pages with documents published on different platforms including 111 projects demanded by my Deputy Hon Chris Azubogu. Speaker Dogara has resorted to blame of so called external forces, are those forces responsible for moving FG projects to his farm?and the 11 others to commence prosecution in earnest. I will share with you the contents of my petition to the EFCC and ICPC in due course and shall return with more shocking revelations.
