The former Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has petition the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission , EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission, ICPC, requesting them to investigate the alleged padding of the budget.
He took some documents to EFCC and ICPC on Monday, stating that he is sure that the evidence would nail the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara in the allegation of budget padding.
Jibrin was removed as the chairman of the committee two weeks ago and in what looks like a reprisal, he is bent on removing Dogara, the house Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun and two other principal officers in the allegation.
Despite that Dogara had threatened the Jibrin with legal fight, the lawmaker has refused to keep mute. His voice has been louder on the budget padding and the need to probe it.
