Abdulmumin Jibrin, former Chairman of the Appropriation Committee of the House of Representatives, is not done painting the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, black as he has made another inciting accusation against the Speaker.
Jibrin, in a statement released on Tuesday, said that the Dogara, in collaboration with Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun, Chief Whip, Alhassan Doguwa, and House Minority leader, Leo Ogor, had planned to kidnap him.
He noted that for the intervention of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) he would have been kidnapped by the quartet. He also expressed his confidence in his party, the All Progressive Congres.
Jibrin said, “The QUARTET of Speaker Dogara and others were determined to abduct or kidnap me until few days when my lawyers requested and got maximum protection for me from the DSS and police.
“I am confident that the party will do the rightful thing by throwing its weight to support our resolve to wipe out corrupt people and institutional corruption in the house and prevail or direct Speaker Yakubu Dogara, deputy speaker Yusuf Lasun, whip Alhassan Doguwa and minority leader Leo Ogor to reconvene the house immediately and step aside to face their imminent prosecution and save the party and our dear country further embarrassment.”
“I wish to state as follows. That I only received a letter yesterday evening inviting me to a meeting in respect of the current crisis in the house today by 2pm at the party’s secretariat. The letter did not in anyway indicate it is a disciplinary committee.
“And I have responded that I will attend the meeting despite my tight schedules shuttling between security and anti-corruption agencies to provide support and evidence against Speaker Yakubu Dogara and 9 others the party had stated that it has made several attempt to reach me through calls and text messages.”
