The sacked Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Hon. Jibrin Abdulmumin, has received an invitation from the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption to brief the committee on the allegations of corruption levelled against the House Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, and three principal officers.

Abdulmumin revealed this on his twitter handle tuesday.

“In another victory for my journey to ensure that justice is served on Dogara, Lasun, Doguwa, Ogor and nine other members, I have received official invitation from the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN),  to make a comprehensive presentation to the committee on the allegations I raised against the Speaker and others, and discuss strategies on how to achieve results. The letter was signed by Executive Secretary of the Committee,  Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye,” the tweets read.

THISDAY gathered that he was expected to meet with Sagay led committee on August 31, 2016, at 11a.m.
The lawmaker last week had petitioned the committee and requested to make an appearance to present his testimony.

Abdulmumin had also petitioned the police and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), accusing Dogara and others of allocating to themselves N40 billion out of the N100billion allocated to the National Assembly, and making senseless insertions into the 2016 budget.
