Dogara threatens legal action against Jibrin
Written by Morenike Adebayo on July 28, 2016
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has given a seven-day ultimatum to the former chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, to tender an unreserved apology to him and retract all allegations of corruption made against him or face legal action.
Jibrin has however said he will never apologize to Dogara, insisting that he won’t back down on his allegations. Jibrin, who was removed as Chairman of the Appropriation Committee last week, had accused Dogara of removing him because he refused to allocate projects worth forty billion naira to the speaker in the 2016 budget. Jibrin also explained via tweets that he is working to get the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Independent Corrupt Practices Commission to investigate Dogara.
