I wasn't part of the 2016 budget padding- sacked Appropriation committee chair, Abdulmumin Jibrin says


In a no-holds-barred interview with Channels TV which was aired yesterday evening, sacked chairman of the House of the Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, says he was never part of the 2016 padding which he described as insertion. 

 He said:

"Well, I wasn't part of the insertions but I think I also didn't help myself because I started speaking quite late. The event that pushed me to start talking doesn't look too attractive to people because they are saying why am I talking now that I have left the position".
Jibrin in the interview denied claims of inserting projects worth N4.1 billion for his constituency into the budget 
"Absolutely false. My problem is that I wasn't talking. I came into the National Assembly pretty young and psychologically, you are made to believe that when you are chairman of appropriation, you have to be secretive"he said.

When asked if the House of Representatives is corrupt, Jibrin said "There is corruption in the house of Representatives. There is institutional corruption and these are things I can prove".

According to Jibrin, Former President Olusegun Obasanjo wasn't completely wrong when he described the National Assembly as a house filled with rogues and thieves 

"Obasanjo is not completely wrong. There is corruption. The only thing is that we keep living in denial. I have been part of the system and I know there is corruption in the system and there is also institutional corruption in that system"he said.
Jibrin says even though he has been in the house for 5 years, he has never been involved in any act of corruption. 
"I have never been in any act corruption. I have never shared money in the National assembly. Never!"he said
