Abdulmumin Jibrin, former appropriations committee chairman of the house of representatives, has accused Yakubu Dogara, the speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, of bribing lawmakers with $25,000 to sign a vote of confidence register.

Jibrin, who is building up to be one of the most controversial lawmakers in the country, made this allegation on micro-blogging website, Twitter on Wednesday.

He claimed, in a set of tweets, that the register has been opened at Speaker Dogara’s guest house at Wilbeford Juta Crescent, Asokoro and said there was a “gang of twelve” conspiring against him.

“Fellow Nigerians, in a desperate attempt, corrupt Speaker Dogara and the 3 others have opened a register for a vote of confidence signature, ” he said.

“The register is opened at his Asokoro guest house located at Wilbeford Juta crescent. Hon members are giving $25,000 to sign.

“This disgraceful act is coordinated by Hon Zakari Mohammed, Hon Jagaba Adams Jagaba and deputy chief of staff to mr speaker Hon CID Maduabum.

“Investigation by anti-graft agencies is already on, I pledge to support the investigation and prosecution of these corrupt public officers.”
