Former chairman of House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has released more documents about budget padding scandal that is rocking the house currently.
Mr. Jibrin confirmed his claims that some lawmakers manipulated line items in the 2016 Appropriation Bill with the documents.
In one of the documents, Chris Azubago, Appropriation Committeeâ€™s deputy chairman, allegedly canvassed up to N109 million worth of â€˜constituencyâ€™ projects for his Nnewi North Federal Constituency in Anambra State.
A list of several other lawmakers and how they allegedly sponsored projects scattered across several ministries, departments and agencies were also captured by the leaked documents.
The House has remained under fire from Mr. Jibrin since July 21, a day after he was removed as chair of the committee.
Speaker Yakubu Dogara, his deputy, Yusuf Lasun, House Whip, Alhassan Doguwa and Minority Leader, Leo Orgor, have remained Mr. Jibrinâ€™s main target in his campaign, which has so far triggered separate investigations from law enforcement agencies.
