Budget Padding: What APC leaders told me- Abdulmumin Jibrin
The Former Chairman of House Committee on Appropriation and House of Representatives whistle blower, Abdulmumin Jibril was summoned to the APC headquarters today before a disciplinary committee to settle the beef between himself and the speaker, Yakubu Dogara over allegations of padding budget.
Speaking after the close door meeting, APC Deputy National Chairman, Shaibu Lawal gave reasons why Jibril was summoned to the party headquarters in Wuse, Abuja.
“We invited him to create an atmosphere of peace and unity amongst our members, we didn’t call him to be disciplined, there is nothing like disciplining any member, whatever happens in the House of Representatives and the Senate, under the constitution, they are immune to do anything”.
But when it goes off boundary, it is the duty of the party to call its members, to re-unite any member who has gone astray.”
“We had a meeting with the speaker as to have a better brief of what is happening, we have to be carried along because they are our members and we should know directly from them what exactly is going on” Shuaibu said.
