N40bn 2016 Budget padding: Arrest Dogara, others – Jibrin urges EFCC, ICPC


Former Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Friday called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, to arrest the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara and three other principal officers of the Green Chambers for attempting to pad the 2016 Budget.
The former Appropriations Committee Chairman had last week accused Dogara, his Deputy, Yusuf Lasun, Chief Whip, Ado Doguwa and Minority leader, Leo Ogor of attempting to pad N40bn into the 2016 budget.


Jibrin, who took to his Twitter handle, urged the anti-graft agencies to arrest and prosecute all principal officers of the House and other members of the House.


He said: “This is 24 hours after my lawyers requested the EFCC and ICPC to grant me a date and time to personally deliver my petition on Mr. Speaker and three others.

“EFCC and ICPC are yet to revert to me. I decided to go personally so that in addition to the petition I can provide some further insight to them.

“EFCC and ICPC must arrest the Speaker, the three others and few others members in my petition immediately.

“They are running to high places, looking for cover
