The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has declared that he will not resign from the position over controversies bordering on alleged padding of the 2016 Budget.
The sacked Chairman of House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumini Jibrin, had claimed that Dogara supported the padding of the budget with forty billion naira.
But speaking with State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja today, Dogara maintained that budget padding is not an offence.
