Former Chairman of the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has accused the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, of diverting a federal government project to his (Dogara’s) farm in Nasarawa State.
Recall that Jibrin has been leveling allegations of corruption against Dogara and some other principal officers of the House since last week when he was removed as the chairman of the Appropriations committee.
Dogara had yesterday given him a seven-day ultimatum to retract the allegations against him and apologise or be ready to face legal action.
But while making the latest allegation on Thursday via his Twitter handle, Jibrin wrote, “Good morning fellow Nigerians. Every day, I will give additional allegation against Mr Speaker and the three others until the law catches up with them.”
“Allegation No 21 to Mr Speaker: Why did you fraudulently divert a federal government water project to your farm in Nasarawa and how are you funding the farm?
“When a new speaker emerges and the other principal officers replaced, I will write to the presiding officers of both chambers to commence a radical internal reform in the entire national assembly beyond budget to cover performance assessment, running cost and allowances, investigations etc
“If the reform so done on the national assembly is not made public latest by December, I will shall take it up and lay before the general public even if I am alone.
“The idea is to do a clean up, flush out corruption and corrupt members so that in 2019 only corrupt-free people who want to serve will come in.”
