NASS to invite EFCC, ICPC to probe budget scandal

The Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, told a news conference in Abuja that JIBRIN would be accorded fair hearing by the committee to defend his allegations against the four principal officers.

ABDULRAZAK NAMDAS, said the leadership of the House had decided to invite the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and other anti-graft agencies to look into the matter, including allegations that JIBRIN himself abused his office between 2011 and 2015 when he was the Chairman, Committee on Finance.

He stated, “He was alleged to have aided the use of front companies that collected funds without executing most of the projects.

The House of Representatives said on Tuesday that it would investigate the budget-padding allegations its former Chairman, Committee on Appropriation, Mr. Abdulmumin Jibrin, levelled against the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, and three other principal officers.

The other three officers are the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Yusuff Lasun; the Chief Whip, Mr. Alhassan Ado-Doguwa; and the Minority Leader, Mr. Leo Ogor.
