A former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has met with the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption over alleged corrupt practices involving some principal officers on the budget process.
He told newsmen after the meeting on Wednesday in Abuja that he took his allegations against Speaker Yakubu Dogara, his deputy Yusuf Lasun, Miniority leader, Leo Ogor, among others to the committee to ensure that justice was done.
He said: “Most importantly, to ensure that a very comprehensive reform is carried out in the House of Representatives, clean up the budgeting system and the activities of the house in terms of oversight and investigation.
“Beyond the House, the country will be the biggest beneficiary and the winner at the end of the day.”
Jibrin pointed out that he made several revelations in response to questions raised by the committee members, adding that “I have expected that they will resign and submit themselves to investigations.
“Of course, the Leader of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, has led by example by submitting himself to the police for investigation.”
Jibrin said he wanted Nigerians to understand that the whole thing was not only about Dogara, “but about changing the system and reforming the House of Representatives.
“If some members of the House or Nigerians feel that Dogara should continue to call himself the number four citizen of this country, so be it.
“I have done my own part of it, I have exposed corruption.
“I have submitted petitions to the anti-corruption agencies, which is within my control and in the control of other members of the National Assembly that believes in this course.”
