Corruption in the House of Representatives is more than that of the executive and judiciary combined – Jibrin

Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and Former Chairman of the House of Representatives’ Appropriation Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin

The controversial former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Hon. Abdulmumuni Jibrin, on Sunday said that the House of Representatives is the most corrupt arm of government in Nigeria.

Mr. Jibrin has since about 30 days ago relentlessly continued his campaign against the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara and other leadership of the House,  Deputy Speaker, Mr. Lasun Yussuff; the Chief Whip, Mr. Alhassan Ado-Doguwa; and the Minority Leader, Mr. Leo Ogor.

In this recent statement yesterday titled “30 Days of Dogara-Gate” Mr. Jibrin said;

“I dare say corruption in the House of Representatives today is more than that of the executive and judiciary combined.

“We shall go on and continue to expose corruption and corrupt persons in the House,” he wrote in a statement as seen on Punch Newspaper.

“The truth remains that Dogara, Yussuff, Doguwa, Ogor and others committed monumental fraud in the 2016 Budget, which can be prosecuted under our laws.

“We will explore all legal avenues to ensure that justice is served,” he stated.

“During this period (30 days), they have struggled to establish one single allegation against me or a single reason for ‘sacking’ me that can stand the test of truth. Every day, the reason for ‘sacking’ me continues to change,” he added.
