Dogara Collected $600,000 From Ibori – Jibrin
BEVERLY HILLS, December 31, (THEWIL) – Suspended member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin has alleged that the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, collected $600,000 from a former governor of Delta State, James Ibori, challenging Dogara to refund the money donated to his speakership campaign.
Jibrin, who had been accusing Dogara and other House leaders of padding the 2016 budget, explained that he has been silent in recent times to strategize and effect some of the advice he has received from well-meaning Nigerians.
Disclosing this in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle @AbdulAbmJ, the suspended lawmaker said he has secured funding from two international organizations to establish a central online platform that will be used to disseminate budget fraud and acts of corruption.
He stated that the platform will also be used to publish and hold lecture series and sensitization programmes on budget fraud and corruption across the country.
