Although the All Progressives Congress, APC has warned the sacked chairman of the appropriation committee in the House of Representatives, Abdulmumuni Jibrin, to stop talking about the budget padding issue, Jibrin in his latest tweets accused the speaker, Yakubu Dogara of conniving with two serving governors and four ex-lawmakers to block his access to President Muhammadu Buhari in order to explain his side of the story.
The APC via its acting National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Timi Frank in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja accused Jibrin of lacking respect for the Sen. Shuaibu Lawal-led committee which has been charged by the party to look into the issue.
“It is now obvious how disrespectful, mannerless and desperate Hon. Jibrin could be even to the leaders of our party which include the deputy national chairman (north), national secretary, national treasurer and others who have been sleeplessly working to ensure that peace returns to the House.But if Hon. Jibrin does not have respect for Speaker Dogara as a person, it is expected of him to respect the office of the speaker, the number four citizen of our party and the country.Jibrin should also be told that he has clearly shown disrespect for President Muhammadu Buhari who is the leader of our party by this singular act. “It is high time Hon. Jibrin kept quite and stopped this public show of shame before his excesses will be made known to Nigerians and the whole world.”
