– Jubrin said the speaker alongside his three-man cabal deduct money from the salaries of House of Representative members

Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers accused of massive corruption

The embattled former chairman of the committee on appropriation of the House of Representatives Abdulmumin Jubrin has made more revelations on how speaker Yakubu Dogara deducts money from salaries of colleagues.

In a statement made available to, Jubrin said the speaker and his three-man senior cabal have enshrined corruption in the lower house.

Jubrin said: “Speaker Yakubu Dogara and his senior cabal namely deputy speaker Yusuf Lasun, whip Doguwa and minority leader Ogor has promoted corruption so badly in the House that if President Muhammadu Buhari with his disdain for corruption and corrupt people have the slightest idea, he will ban the quartet permanently from the Villa before they eventually allow for proper and unbiased investigation by the House.”

Jubrin in this fresh allegation against the speaker said Dogara in collaboration with the deputy speaker diverted millions of naira in the guise of paying for guest houses and office residence.

“The issue became so messy that the deputy speaker openly accused Hon Herma Hembe of short changing them of millions of naira in the deal to the shock of many Hon Members.

“Speaker Yakubu Dogara frequently abuse his office amounting to conflict of interest by soliciting for inappropriate favours from agencies and Multinational companies. He forced an agency to grant loans and a construction company blackmailed to do some work at his Asokoro ‘plot’,” Jubrin said.

He also said Dogara “carefully” designed a scheme to shortchange all members of the lower house of their wages.

These monies, Jubrin said are deducted as mortgage arrangement to build houses for members of the House of Representatives.

“He has been applying every under hand tactics to ensure members agree to the deal.

“Speaker Yakubu Dogara has consistently refused members access to the financial dealings and internal budget of the House. He runs the financial management of the House like a cult aided and abated by the Chairman House services Hon Babanlle Ila. It is no longer news that all over the House, honourable members are aware of the monumental fraud perpetrated by Speaker Yakubu Dogara in this regard.

“We are even told that this is a child’s play compared to the mess and allegations of money laundering he left behind as Chairman house services in both the 6th and 7th Assembly. The EFCC should have something to start working with in respect to his tenure as Chairman House services if they properly dust their files,” the embattled lawmaker said.

He further called on all members of the House of Representatives to prevail on the speaker and his cabals for a thorough investigations on the allegations against them in the interest of the country.

“This is just the tip of an iceberg, I will make further revelations in due course,” Jubrin said.

Since the past week, there has been a crossfire between the speaker Dogara and the former committee chairman on appropriation at the House of Representatives.

The crisis has led to avalanche of revelations on illegal activities of lawmakers in the padding the recently passed appropriation act.

The crisis started after Dogara sacked Jubrin as the chairman of committee on appropriation.

Jubrin had earlier accused the speaker and his cabals of adding N40 billion for themselves in the budget, he also claimed to have prevented the trio from perpetrating the fraudulent act.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
