President Muhammadu Buhari and Speaker Yakubu Dogara

Dogara visited the President two weeks ago presumably over the ongoing budget padding crisis rocking the lower chamber.

After his first meeting with the President, he had told State House correspondents that budget padding is not a crime, boasting that he has nothing to be afraid of concerning the matter.

The sacked chairman of appropriation committee of the House, Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin had blown the whistle on the alleged fraudulent activities that went into the 2016 budget, claiming that the Speaker and other principal officers of the House illegally inserted constituency projects worth billions of Naira in the budget.
