Former Chairman of the House of Representatives Appropriation Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin has described Minority Leader, Leo Ogor as a bully who has wasted 13 years in the House.

Ogor had earlier said that Jibrin needs to get psychiatric testing after the latter accused some of his colleagues of budget padding.

Jibrin’s comments are contained in a statement released today, August 29, 2016.

It reads:

“As we continue this process of creative destruction and sustain the momentum, I will provide a recap of all allegations raised so far later.”

“Later, I will also share with you a conversation with the leadership of the House created from the entire issue so you can judge for yourself. As for Minority Leader, Leo Ogor a known bully who has had 13 wasteful years in the House, he cannot believe someone is finally standing up against them! Ogor, epitomized corruption!

“He is the one not me that should visit the hospital and get his big belly filled up with fraud and bribes deflated. Ogor, runs a ring of corrupt cabal in the House who specializes in hijacking committees and investigative hearing for fraudulent purposes.

“Ogor threatens with violence and treats his colleagues like school boys and has remained a curse and part of the dark history of the House. Rather than Ogor to simply tell Nigerians what he has received if he disputes my figures, he has resorted to personal attacks on my person.

“Leo Ogar is a master of corruption and will never forgive me for the selfless and onerous role I played at ensuring he did not emerged Deputy Speaker! That would have amounted to bringing up one of the longest serving corruption mafia in the House as a presiding Officer. It is a role I played and remained very proud of.”

Jibrin also accused Speaker, Yakubu Dogara of supervising the alleged budget padding.
