Budget padding : Jibrin issues 3-day ultimatum


Dogara-JibrinThough suspended from his legislative duties, Abdulmumin Jibrin still maintains his stance that corruption prevails in the House of Representatives.

It is an evil he says he is prepared to unearth at any cost.

The former chairman of the Committee on Appropriation is now giving his colleagues in the Green chamber three days to return all questionable allowances they had received to the federal purse.

Jibrin made the statement after he was suspended by the House for 180 legislative days after being found guilty of violating House ethics and lawmakers’ privileges.

He had accused the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers of padding the 2016 budget to the tune of over N40bn.
