Budget Padding: Jibrin Defies APC Order, Alleges Plot To Kill Him, Reveals More, Implicates 2 Govs
The whistleblower former chairman of the appropriation at the House of Representative, Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin yesterday broke his few days silence, defying cease comment order of his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, dishing out more incriminating facts on the lingering crisis of the padding of the 2016 appropriation bill involving Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other Principal officers

Jibrin in several tweets on his handle, @AbdulAbmJ said: 

“It has once again become necessary for me to make some statements, clarifications and further revelations.

“As you are aware, my party(APC) has intervened in the current crisis following allegations of corruption, embezzlement and abuse of office leveled against Speaker Yakubu Dogara, three principal officers and nine other members of which none had responded to any.

“As I said earlier, it is only the 13 members of the House that are on trial, not the House of Representatives as an institution.

“Surprisingly, they have resorted to using every tactics to narrow the allegations to only issue of padding, which in itself is a grievous offence, ignoring tens of other criminal allegations in my petition to the anti-corruption agencies.

“In doing so, they mischievously expanded the scope of the culpability to give an impression that the entire House, the Senate and even the Executive arm of government and some individuals outside the National Assembly are on trial.

“This is a wicked attempt to drag many institutions and individuals into the matter to neutralise the issue, spread fear and sell dummy that the entire country will go down if this matter is dealt with decisively, the biggest blackmail on the entire country I have ever seen.

“Nigerians should know that the whole agenda of this blackmail is  being coordinated by  two serving governors and three former members. I will give their names in due course. They have been running from pillar to post and I keep wondering what really are they afraid of.

“The meeting with the party went very well and in all honesty, they were very objective and showed understanding.

“I told the party that I will be part of any peaceful resolution except the criminal allegations I have raised against Dogara and 12 others.

“On that, I told the party there is no going back and further informed them that more revelations will be made once investigation commences.”

Alleging that there is a plan to assassinate him, Jibrin said: “I believe Speaker Dogara, the 12 others and some vested interest within and outside the House want to kill me. I no longer feel safe. I have carefully followed their desperation to suppress what will go down in history as the biggest corruption case in Nigeria.

“I have prepared myself for any eventuality. I have spoken to my mum and dad extensively during the weekend. I have prepared my family. I have handed over a handwritten note and documents to a popular Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), a man of integrity and other persons that I believe will lay it bare even if they succeed in killing me.

After three days of careful observation and receiving information from very patriotic Nigerians, I discovered a grand plan by the group of two governors and three former (House) members designed to provide soft-landing for Dogara and 12 others, give them time to clean up the mess on their desk, destroy whatever evidence in their possession and reach, spread money across members to buy signature of vote of confidence.

“So the Speaker is saying the nine roads he inserted into the budget which he fraudulently sandwiched into four roads and inserted billions into that without any design or costing is not an offence? Or the water project he hijacked from the budget and took to his farm is not an offence? Or moving 10 solar boreholes to a place that probably requires just two is not an offence?”
