Former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin has said the allegation of operating foreign account raised against him is an attempt by propaganda by Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara to divert public attention from issue of budget padding.
Jibrin in his Tweet this morning accused the Nigeria Youth Congress of Nigeria (NYCN) of fabricating an account document with ING bank with Essex address and balance of €1.3 m in order to discredit his struggle against Speaker.
He claimed that the account was fake and did now own such account or balance.
He added that the story was just the propaganda arranged by the desperate Speaker Dogara through his Deputy Chief of Staff Hon CID Maduabum.
Jibrin in series of tweet on Monday morning said: “My attention has been drawn to a widely circulated report that I own an account with ING bank UK with Essex address and balance of £1.3m
“The document is FAKE; I DO NOT own such account or balance neither do I have anything whatsoever to do with the said address at Essex
”This blackmail is part of a wider propaganda arranged by the desperate Speaker Dogara through his Deputy Chief of Staff Hon CID Maduabum.
“Hon Maduabum recruited and paid 20 million naira to one Ifeanyi Okonkwo and Ikenga Ugochinyere of a shadow youth organisation to do the hatchet jobs.
“You will recall that the same group went to town with the allegations of 17 billion and 418 million naira which all turned out a fluke.
“Ahead of resumption of the House, they are back at work to divert attention from allegations of budget fraud and corruption against Mr Speaker.
“The plan is to create credibility problem for me as I release more revelations on Mr Speaker that will send shock down the spines of Nigerians.
“It is curious that all the allegations on me are made by faceless or shadow groups, no Member of the House has signed any allegation on me.
“I am calling on the relevant authorities to investigate and take decisive action on this latest assault on my person and unveil the real sponsors
”I will be reporting these hatchet men to the police and EFCC this morning and my lawyers are taking the necessary legal actions. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! “
“I urge the public to disregard this latest blackmail as the document in circulation is not worth a toilet paper! Thank you and God bless.”
