The Vice Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Downstream Sector, Danlami Muhammad Kurfi, has lashed out at the former chairman of the House’ Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, for calling on Speaker Dogara and three other Principal Officers to resign over the budget-padding scandal currently rocking the House.
Senator Kurfi, who represents Dutsinma/Kurfi Federal Constituency of Katsina State, said: “The former appropriation committee chairman should not be taken serious because his utterances are “mere ranting of someone who is paying for his actions.”
Asked Kurfi: “Why did it take him this long to tell Mr. President that the Speaker dines with his enemies?” he insisted that the erstwhile Appropriation Committee Chairman should thank his stars that his sack came when members were on recess.
He explained that “if this had happened while we were in session, some of us would have moved for his suspension.” Kurfi accused the former Appropriation Committee Chairman of sheer arrogance, noting that “he has no regard for other members of the House and even members of his committee.”
He insisted that the removal of Jibrin was one of the best decisions to be taken by the Speaker, adding that Jibrin had betrayed trust of not just the lower chambers but that of all Nigerians.
