Jibrin takes budget insertions allegations against Dogara to diplomatic community

Abdulmumin Jibrin on Monday said that he has commenced briefing the diplomatic community about the alleged crimes involving Speaker Yakubu Dogara and others.

The Chairman, House of Representatives Appropriation Committee, stated that in the next few days he will comprehensively brief the British High Commission and the American, French and German embassies about his corruption allegation against Speaker Dogara and 12 members of the House.

Jibrin said this in a statement he issued on Monday, adding that Dogara has been making massive withdrawal of funds to offer to members to fight him (Jibrin).

He disclosed that he wrote the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption on Monday “requesting an appointment to make a detailed presentation on all the allegations that constitute Dogara-gate.”

Jibrin said, “I also heard on good authority that a close associate of Dogara, who is the Chief Executive of a well-known Federal Government agency, has been approaching members with offer of money to support the Speaker.

“I have 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.

“The utterances of Speaker Dogara in the last few days, like his public pronouncement that padding is not an offence, have clearly confirmed my innocence. I have, therefore, petitioned the Public Complaints Commission and the National Human Rights Commission to enforce and protect my fundamental human rights.’’
