Jibrin ‘sends names of 50 lawmakers who took illegal allowances to EFCC’

Suspended lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Thursday said he had made good his threat to submit to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, names of 50 members of the House of Representatives who allegedly took illegal allowances.

Mr. Jibrin said he demanded a thorough investigation of the individuals as well as their prosecution.

The development is the latest in the unfolding budget padding scandal which Mr. Jibrin first brought to the public attention in July and for which he is serving a one-year suspension.

It followed the expiration of a three-day ultimatum Mr. Jibrin gave lawmakers to return their illegal allowances through the Clerk of the National Assembly.

Although Mr. Jibrin said he delivered a petition against 50 lawmakers, his statement to PREMIUM TIMES contained only 12 names.

Familiar names on the list included Speaker Yakubu Dogara; his deputy, Yusuf Lasun; House Whip, Alhassan Doguwa; Minority Leader, Leo Ogor; Herman Hembe, chairman of House Committee on FCT and a Kaduna lawmaker, Adams Jagaba.

The list included six members whose names did not feature in previous statements.

They are, Timothy Golu, Yunusa Abubakar, Mukaila Kazzim, Lynda Ikpeazu, Abdulrazak Namdas, and Nicholas Osai.

Mr. Jibrin’s statement also left out the amount each lawmaker allegedly claimed in illegal allowances.

All the 12 lawmakers declined comments on Thursday night, with Mr. Abubakar saying Mr. Jibrin’s statements no longer deserve a response from members since he had been suspended.

“I will not dignify a suspended lawmaker with any response,” Mr. Abubakar said. “He’s not my colleague.”

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujiaren, said he could not immediately confirm Mr. Jibrin’s statement.

    Jibrin is fighting a personal battle which he should concentrate on.
    However, the NASS members are all killing Nigeria through their demonic salaries, allowances and other benefits. Whatever Jibrin claim to have been enjoyed by those he listed – the arrow heads of his suspension have also been enjoyed by him.
    Jibrin is a criminal and must be so treated with all the members of NASS, as there is no exception to the rule.
    All of Jibrins bank accounts, account of those who handled his constituency projects must be passed through forensic audit to determine those who wired kickbacks to the foreign accounts he keeps.
    By the way, why is he not facing the CCB for operating a foreign account?
    Buhari wonders!

      Let your enemy’s enemy be your friend
      So often it is. Jibrin, by fighting a personal battle is aiding us in our war against corruption. Jibrin has never said that he is free of corruption. Enough is enough, Nigeria must move forward.

    Over to the fake EFCC. This is a big test for EFCC. Their actions and inactions will tell the whole world whether they are sincere or not. I like to be proven wrong but the EFCC is simply an appendage of the present government, they are being used to persecute opposition and enemies of the government.


    Unfortunately for Jibrin, the list contains some APC so it will not see the light of day at the EFCC. If Jibrin wants the EFCC to act fast, he should compile the SS and SE members only or PDP members alone and he will see quick action from the EFCC.

    • princegab

      You are wrong sir, the EFCC will act and promptly at that, sir.

    Herman Hembe’ s name surely features in cases like this one. That guy is supposed to be in kirikiri. He got off the hook in a corrupt system the last time he was caught in racketeering the leadership of nse.

    Jibrin, why waste your time?
    Have you not heard that the FG has withdrawn the case against Ekweremadu and Saraki? This APC government is a ruse. It has helped to finally destroy the little confidence the people have left, in our democratic system. Send the list to the people’s court. The Atrocious Pandemic Corruption that has gained solid ground in our polity will do everything to ensure that the people continue to be raped. They, like their forerunners, will eventually be overthrown at the right season, by a truly awakened people.

    Na waa … This is tantamount to Libel. Can he give details and facts about his claims and not just run helter skelter with his mouth. Lynda Ikpeazu that’s a big member of the house that did not even get to chairman any committee, It’s obvious this assembly does not favour her in any way so how will she eat money? All these unfounded accusations.
