Jibrin has disclosed that the Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and the Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Sulaimon Lasun, alongside other members of the house, have stolen huge amounts of money from the country’s national purse over the years to host lavish parties with commercial sex workers in rented guest houses.
Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin made the shocking allegation on Twitter, revealing that despite the on-going recession which has resulted in untold hardship in the country, Nigerian lawmakers have continued to plunder the nation, feeding fat on the sweat of the ordinary people.
