Budget 2017: 'I Will Expose Some Things That Will Shock Nigerians' - Jibrin
Before the whistle-blowers, there was Abdulmumin Jibrin.
He was the sacred cow that was led to the slaughter slab of the House of Representatives and offered as the sacrificial lamp on the altar of the lawmakers.
He came, he saw and was forcefully taken away by the tide of allegations that followed claims of padding in the 2016 budget.
On Monday, the former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation said he knows things that some lawmakers who were physically present in the House are not aware of.
He says there are hidden facts and mysteries within the document which the Acting President signed into law on Monday, June 12.
“In due course I will expose a lot of other issues in the 2017 budget that will shock Nigerians whether the authority decides to act on it or not", he said.
He also told newsmen in Abuja that he has been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission following his petition which he submitted in 2016 accusing the House leadership of being fraudulent and highhanded.
“This is a welcome development as it is coming at a time that many Nigerians have lost hope that the outcome of my petition will not see the light of the day.
“I have severally maintained that I have full confidence in the EFCC under the Chairmanship of Ibrahim Magu", he said.
Jibrin is still observing the 180 legislative days suspension for disrespecting House privileges.
