Abdulmumin Jibrin, a member of the federal house of representatives, has vowed to “exposing” Yakubu Dogara, the speaker, until he is removed.
Jibrin started slamming allegations of corruption against Dogara and other members of the house leadership when he was removed as the chairman of the appropriations committee last week.
On Wednesday, Dogara had given him seven days to apologise for the allegations or face a lawsuit, but the legislator vowed not apologise to Dogara, instead calling the speaker a “shameless fraud”.
Continuing on Thursday, Jibrin accused Dogara of diverting a federal government project to his farm in Nasarawa.

“Good morning fellow Nigerians. Every day, I will give additional allegation against Mr Speaker and the three others until the law catches up with them,” he said.
“Allegation No 21 to Mr Speaker: Why did you fraudulently divert a federal government water project to your farm in Nasarawa and how are you funding the farm?
“When a new speaker emerges and the other principal officers replaced, I will write to the presiding officers of both chambers to commence a radical internal reform in the entire national assembly beyond budget to cover performance assessment, running cost and allowances, investigations etc
“If the reform so done on the national assembly is not made public latest by December, I will shall take it up and lay before the general public even if I am alone.
“The idea is to do a clean up, flush out corruption and corrupt members so that in 2019 only corrupt-free people who want to serve will come in.”
