Budget padding: Jibrin refuses to back down, exposes Dogara at NHRC, foreign embassies


The former chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, yesterday disclosed that he had approached the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and some embassies in Nigeria over the ongoing budget crisis in the House.

Jibrin said in a statement that after sending a letter to the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the matter on Friday, he forwarded a similar letter yesterday to the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-corruption, requesting for an appointment to make a detailed presentation on all the allegations he levelled against Speaker Yakubu Dogara and 12 others.

His words: “I have also commenced briefing the diplomatic community and will in the next few days provide a comprehensive briefing to the British High Commission and the American, French and German embassies.

“I have, therefore, petitioned the Public Complained Commission and National Human Right Commission to enforce and protect my fundamental human right. Though as Speaker, he has the powers to sack committee chairmen but that must be done with justice, fairness and a huge sense of responsibility.

“Nigerians must be vigilant because Speaker Dogara is using his office to obstruct investigation and provide shield for himself and the other accused. He is also using his office to raise money with the massive withdrawal from the House account,” he said.
