The embattled former Chairman of the Appropriation Committee of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon Abdulmumini Jubrin has called on the Speaker of the House, Hon. Yakubu Dogara to refund the sum of $600,000 he collected from a former governor of Edo State, James Ibori.
This is coming just as he stated that a mass rally would be held in Kano next week with 5000 youths across the country, adding that “Our anti corruption crusade with be ruthless in 2017.”
In a series of tweets on his social media page on Saturday, Jubrin stated that he has secured funding from some unnamed organisations to fight corruption in the National Assembly.
Though he did not state the details of the dealings between Ibori who was recently released from a British prison and Dogara, Jubrin tweeted, “Since he has disown Ibori, he should at least have the honour to return the $600,000 Ibori donated to his speakership campaign.
“It is such a shame that Speaker Dogara denied the fact that former Gov James Ibori provided huge support to his emergence as Speaker.”
Jubrin lamented the silence of the speaker to the series of allegations levied against him, he tweeted that “BUDGET FRAUD AND CORRUPTION,as we enter new year, let’s not forget 163 days after Dogara is yet to respond to mountain of allegations 1-17.
On the purported foreign support, he stated, “We have secured funding from 2 international org to establish a central online platform that will be use to disseminate budget fraud and corruption acts and publish and also hold lecture series and sensitization programs on budget fraud and corruption across the country.”
