The embattled former chairman of the House of Representatives appropriation committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin is making secret moves to “beg Speaker Yakubu Dogara”.
Dailytrust gathered that Jibrin, who was suspended in September for one year, following his allegations of massive fraud in the House, had delegated some lawmakers close to the speaker to appeal to Dogara for forgiveness for all that he did.
Jibrin had, after his sack on July 20, alleged that Dogara, his deputy, Yussuf Suleiman Lasun, Chief Whip Alhassan Ado Doguwa and Minority Leader Leo Ogor, made failed attempts to force him to insert projects worth about N40 billion for them in the 2016 budget, among other allegations.
After his return, he reportedly visited a ranking member, a close ally of Dogara, from Borno State at the latter’s Maitama residence in Abuja and pleaded with him to also intervene.
It was learnt that as part of the moves, Jibrin posted a happy birthday message to the speaker on his Twitter handle on Tuesday, which read: “This is to wish Mr Speaker a happy 49th birthday and many prosperous years ahead. Wishing you God guidance and blessings.”
