Dogara and His Cabals Are Crooks In The House-Jibrin


...Says Buhari Would Ban Them From Aso Rock Soon

Former chairman of the House of Representatives committee on

Appropriation, Abdulmumuni Jibrin has said President Muhammadu Buhari will

ban Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun and two others from

visiting the presidential villa if he the extent of corruption by them

were fully exposed.
In a blistering statement released on Monday entitled”the Corrupt Speaker

Yakubu Dogara and his 3-man cabal,” Jibrin raised a series of allegations

against the principal officers including Minority Leader, Leo Ogor and

Chief Whip, Garba Alhassan.
Jibrin said his allegations should be investigated and the extent of

corruption ascertained before the House undertakes to probe the budget

padding saga he triggered last week.
The statement reads: “Honourable colleagues and fellow Nigerians, I wish

to make further revelations.
“Speaker Yakubu Dogara and his senior cabal namely Deputy Speaker Lasun,

Whip Doguwa and Minority leader Ogor has promoted corruption so badly in

the House that if President Muhammadu Buhari with his disdain for

corruption and corrupt people have the slightest idea, he will ban the

QUARTET permanently from the Villa before they eventually allow for proper

and unbiased investigation by the House.
“Mr Speaker and Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun diverted millions of naira all

in the name of paying for guest houses and official residence. The issue

became so messy that the Deputy Speaker openly accused Hon Herma Hembe of

short changing them of millions of naira in the deal to the shock of many

Hon Members.
“Speaker Yakubu Dogara frequently abuse his office amounting to conflict

of interest by soliciting for inappropriate favours from agencies and

Multinational companies. He forced an agency to grant loans and a

construction company blackmailed to do some work at his Asokoro 'plot'

“Speaker Yakubu Dogara has carefully designed a scheme to scam Hon Members

through deduction from their salaries certain amount of money for a so

called mortgage arrangements to build houses for members. He has been

applying every under hand tactics to ensure Members agree to the deal.

“Speaker Yakubu Dogara  has consistently refused members access to the

financial dealings and internal budget of the House. He runs the financial

management of the House like a cult aided and abated by the Chairman House

services Hon Babanlle Ila.  It is no longer news that all over the House,

Hon Members are aware of the monumental fraud perpetrated by Speaker

Yakubu Dogara in this regard.
“We are even told that this is a child's play compared to the mess and

allegations of money laundering he left behind as Chairman house services

in both the 6th and 7th Assembly. The EFCC should have something to start

working with in respect to his tenure as Chairman House services if they

properly dust their files.
“I am therefore once again calling on Hon Colleagues and well meaning

Nigerians to prevail on Speaker Yakubu Dogara and his 3 other cohorts to

put the interest of country first and allow the House to conduct a

thorough investigation into the allegations on them.

“This is just the tip of an ice bag. I will make further revelations in

due course.”
But in a swift reaction, spokesman to Speaker, Turaki Hassan, said

Jibrin's allegations are a tissue of lies that should be dismissed.

“These are all lies and desperate attempts of a drowning man to clutch

unto anything having found that all his frivolous allegations do not

disclose any element of corruption or wrongdoing against Mr. Speaker,” a

terse rejoinder said.
