The House of Representatives has resolved to conduct an investigation into the allegations of altering the 2016 budget by some of its members.

This followed a point of order brought under Matters of Privilege by the Chairman, House Committee on Rules and Business, Emmanuel Oker-Jev.
Former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, accused the Speaker of the house, Yakubu Dogara and some principal officers of padding the 2016 budget.
Jibrin also insisted that Dogara should resign to allow investigations to be conducted into the matter.
While moving the point of order, Oker-Jev called for the suspension of Jibrin, describing his allegations as “sundry act of misconduct’’ against the members and institution of the House of Representatives.
According to him, Jibrin embarked on campaign of calumny and denigration by making publications in the media and Internet against the entire membership of the House of Representatives and the National Assembly as an institution.
“Jibrin’s comments were contemptuous of the House of Representatives and a breach of collective privileges of the members of the house.”
However, efforts to oppose the point of order by Ali Madaki failed.
Madaki said that it would be an honourable thing for the accused persons to resign in order to allow for proper investigation into the matter.
While reacting to Madaki’s statement, Dogara said that since all the members of the house were accused, Madaki should be the first to resign.
The matter was referred to the Committee on Ethics and Privileges for proper investigation and to report back in one week. (TV360 Nigeria)
