As he stepped out of the meeting, State House Correspondents asked him his mission at the Villa:
What informed your visit?
Dogara: Can’t I come and see my President? Do I need any reason to come and see my President? It’s a private visit.
Was the issue of alleged budget padding discussed?
Dogara: What is budget padding?
The language emanated from your chambers
Dogara: I don’t know, educate me. I am a lawyer and speaker and I have never heard of the word padding. What does padding mean?
The former chairman of the Appropriation Committee said you padded the budget
Dogara: Ask him. He who alleges must prove. That’s the law in Nigeria
Are you not going to defend yourself?
Dogara: Am I before a court?
There are people saying you should reconvene the House before the September resumption time and step aside for a thorough investigation
Dogara: We have rules and regulations. This is not a mock institution, we operate by the rules and we will follow the rules.
Will you resign?
Dogara: Resign for what?
Dogara: What are the allegations?
That you and some members of the leadership padded the budget.
Dogara: What is padding? You haven’t told me. Ask Jibrin what is padding. I studied law and I have been in the legislature and all this period I have never heard of the word padding being an offence under any law. If I don’t know, you are the media, research the law and let me know.
Are you worried?
Dogara: Worried for what? Worried over nothing, why should I be worried? As far as I am concerned I’m not worried about anything.
Will there be sanctions for Jibrin?
Dogara: I am not the chairman of the Ethics Committee of the House, so I wouldn’t know and I don’t know what padding means.
