JIBRIN LAMBASTS DOGARA OVER MUFFLERS!

If you succeed in blackmailing your colleagues, you cannot blackmail Nigerians. Let’s not take the patience of Nigerians for granted.
 
When Francis Fukuyama wrote the book The End of History and the Last Man in 1992, he was not saying the world has come to an end but simply indicating the emergence of the last and final world order. What happened yesterday on the floor of the House was just the end of another beginning. The emergence of a struggle to establish a new order in the House of Representatives that will expose and deal with all forms of corruption both systemic and individual.
 
Mr Speaker, this struggle is like the rising sun, it is unstoppable. There is nothing you can do on earth to stop it. No amount of lobbying, legislative antics or blackmail of members of the House, Senate, Executive arm or individuals outside the House can help you and your cabal of few corrupt members. The day of reckoning is so close.
 
We all know you blackmailed members to get support and wear mufflers in a show of shame to celebrate you due to the abundance of systemic corruption (which people like you instituted) in the House that makes many members vulnerable and dependent. To you it was a “smart” move. You just want the entire House to go down with you because you know I will pull the trigger. It is gladdening that some courageous members defied your blackmail and rose to the occasion. History will be kind to them.
 
History will remember you as the Speaker who brought down and endanger the reputation of the House through budget fraud and monumental corruption. The House must embrace reforms. It is a reform you have lost the moral ground to superintend. How on earth a person like you who committed the biggest budget fraud in the history of the House will supervise budget reforms? It is time you woke up from your dream and embrace reality. The time has come, Whether you like it or not, justice will be served on you, Lasun, Doguwa and Ogor.
 
God bless Nigeria. Yours in service to the nation,

Budget Padding: Commotion in House of Reps as members settle for probing Abdulmumin Jibrin

The House of Representatives on Wednesday resolved to conduct an investigation into the allegations of tampering with the 2016 budget by some of its members.

This followed a point of order brought under Matters of Privilege by the Chairman, House Committee on Rules and Business, Emmanuel Oker-Jev.

It would be recalled that former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin (APC-Kano), accused the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, and some principal officers of padding the 2016 budget.

Jibrin also demanded that Dogara should resign to allow investigations to be conducted into the matter.

Moving the point of order, Oker-Jev called for the suspension of Jibrin, describing his allegations as “sundry act of misconduct” against the members and institution of the House of Representatives.

According to him, Jibrin embarked on campaign of calumny and denigration by making publications in the media and internet against the entire membership of the House of Representatives and the National Assembly as an institution.

Oker-Jev said:

“Jibrin’s comments were contemptuous of the House of Representatives and a breach of collective privileges of the members of the house.”

However, efforts to oppose the point of order by Ali Madaki (APC-Kano) failed. Madaki said that it would be a honourable thing for the accused persons to resign in order to allow for proper investigation into the matter.

Reacting, Dogara said that since all the members of the House were accused, Madaki should be the first to resign.

The matter was referred to the Committee on Ethics and Privileges for proper investigation and to report back in one week.

But this was not before the House witnessed a commotion following the decision of Dogara to recognise Oker-Jev to speak ahead of Madaki. It took several minutes for order to be restored in the House.
