Hon. Jibrin  Attacks House Of Reps for Questioning the Actions of the DSS

Embattled House of Representatives member and former House Committee Chairman on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has hit out at the house for questioning the actions of the DSS in the fight against corruption. He accused the speaker, Dogara and other house members of being neck-deep in corruption and therefore lacking the moral grounds to question the actions against the judges.  

Insisting on his allegations, Jibrin shared portions of the letter he wrote to the DSS, and promised to provide evidence to substantiate his claims. Below, we produce excerpts of the letter as shared through his Twitter account.  

‘You will recall that I wrote you a letter dated July 29 where I requested on the strength of the fraud and abuse of office allegations I leveled against Speaker Dogara and others for your office to investigate, arrest and prosecute the Speaker and other corrupt persons in the House

I wish to remind you that 3 months after, things have remained the same. The accused persons have become emboldened, walk around freely, and carrying out actions to destroy evidence, made attempts to kidnap and assassinate me and corruption continue to strive in the House of Reps.

Last week, I raised alarm over systemic corruption where billions are stolen by Members of the House of Reps in the name of running cost. I demanded investigation and the Minister of Finance to stop payment of such money forthwith because as an insider I am hundred percent sure that the money is diverted to private pockets through a fraudulent means of systemic corruption but all seems to fall on deaf ears

I further provided some names of members involved in the running cost scam as a starting point for investigation and prosecution as follows; Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, Whip Alhassan Doguwa, Minority Leader Leo Ogor, Hon Herma Hembe, Hon Jagaba Adams, Hon Timothy Golu, Hon Yunusa Abubakar, Hon Mukaila Olayiwola Kazzim, Hon Lynda Chuba Ikpeazu, Hon Abdulrazak Namdas and Hon Osai Nicolas. [This]chronic corruption in the House is undoubtedly a threat to National Security and must be dealt with decisively without further delays. You will be failing in your duties if you do not take decisive actions to bring this disgraceful and destructive situation to an end. As I mentioned earlier, I am ready to provide all assistance throughout the period of this investigation, arrest and prosecution.”

Two days ago, the EFCC stated that they now have the matter under their searchlight.
