Last week, the crossfire between a former chairman of House Committee on Appropriation, Adbdulmumin Jibrin, and the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, took a new turn, with Mr. Jibrin dropping yet another round of allegations.
Mr. Jibrin, a lawmaker from Kano State, said the speaker connived with his deputy, Yusuf Lasun, Chief Whip Alhassan Doguwa, and Minority Whip Leo Ogor to earmark up to ₦40 billion to themselves in the National Assembly budget. And that he was the one who thwarted their plot.
In summary, the budget was padded and everyday in the house, more events keep unfolding about how the budget was padded.
