Former chairman of Appropriations Committee of the House of Representatives, ABDULMUMIN JIBRIN, who has accused the speaker, YAKUBU DOGARA, of substantial fraud, has given reasons why he had to wait till now to speak out.
JIBRIN started releasing details of alleged budget fraud involving Speaker DOGARA and three other principal officers, LASUN YUSUF, ALHASSAN DOGUWA and LEO OGOR, last week.
It came after he was removed as chairman of the appropriation committee.
According to JIBRIN and I quote, “For those who keep saying why now, they should realize that for every situation like this to occur, there must be a trigger however it looks! I woke up midnight yesterday to pray and suddenly realized I have become an accidental activist. This is noble and there is no going back!”, end of quote
In his statement on Thursday, ABDULMUMIN JIBRIN said he would continue to make daily allegation of fraud and abuse of office against YAKUBU DOGARA and his senior cabal until the law catches up with them, raising another allegation that DOGARA diverted a federal water project to his farm in Nassarawa State.
