‘Dogara must resign,’ Lawmakers insist
The lawmakers, under the umbrella of the Transparency Group also said that they would not negotiate with Dogara on the issue.
The comments were made by Honourable Yusuf Bala Ikara on behalf of the other members of the group.
“We in the transparency group are saying we won’t negotiate with anybody. We are going to continue with our struggle and that is our position today,” Ikara said.
“We insist that Dogara must resign to allow proper investigation to be carried out or he should reconvene the house if he has the number and tell the whole world that this is the number he has. We challenge them to publish that 325 members if they actually have them.
“But I believe they don’t have such numbers, if they have it they should publish it; we challenge them. This is not something personal; we are not attacking Dogara. No, we are talking about the public. These issues have generated some much interest. The whole country is on national assembly.
“Our name is being tarnished. Our image is damaged. We have been called so many names, thieves, robbers, rogues,” he added.
Former Chairman of the House Appropriation Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin has accused Dogara of padding the 2016 budget.
