$25,000 Vote of confidence bribe: Hon. Zakari Mohammed responds to Jibrin's allegation


Former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin, released a statement today alleging that Speaker Yakubu Dogara was bribing some lawmakers with $25,000 each to sign a vote of confidence for him and three other principal officers he has accused of budget padding. Jibrin alleged that it was being coordinated by Hon. Zakari Mohammed and others at the Speaker’s guest house in Asokoro.
Hon Zakari has now responded and debunked the allegation. His statement read,

"My attention has been drawn to yet another tweet by the former chairman appropriation committee, Hon. Jibrin, saying that I and others were distributing $25,000 to each member of the House. That the money was to generate signatures for speaker Dogara as vote of confidence on him.
The accusation is not only untrue but it is another tale by moonlight to hoodwink Nigerians to malign my image.
Fellow countrymen please disregard this cheap blackmail aimed at playing to the gallery. I challenge Jibrin to name at least 10 members or less who benefitted from the bribe.
My advice to Jibrin is that he should stop the mudslinging and concentrate on licking his self inflicted wounds."
