The suspended member of the House of Assembly, Honourable Jubrin Mumin, is making more revelations about what he described as monumental corruption of his colleagues in the House of Representatives.

In his latest release, Dr Jubrin Mumin revealed what he described as fraudulent diversion of “running cost of the House of Assembly because such money had been finding its way into private pockets of members of the House.

Jubrin therefore advised the Minister of Finance, Accountant General of the Federation, Attorney General of the Federation and Clerk of National Assembly to stop with immediate effect further payments of running cost allowances to Members of the House of Representatives because, according to him as an insider, he knew that most of such money had been and was being diverted into private pockets.

He argued that there was no law in our country that was intended to protect corruption. He added that continuous payment of such money negates the spirit and genuine intention of establishing such laws in the first place.

The embattled Lawmaker also called on Nigerians, companies, ministries, departments and agencies to shun invitations from the House of Representatives until the House allows for a transparent investigation of individual and systemic corruption allegations in collaboration with ongoing external investigations by the police and anti-graft agencies and commence a wide ranging reforms to restore the battered image of the House.

Jubrin assured that nothing would happen to any member of the executive if the stoppage and shunning of the National Assembly was effected just as nothing happened to the former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Allison-Madueke towards the end of the 7th Assembly when she shunned and dared the House.

He said he had forwarded to the Anti-graft agencies the first batch of names of 50 members of the House that were involved in running cost allowances fraud in their entire stay in the House.

The first batch include Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, Whip Alhassan Doguwa, Minority Leader Leo Ogor, Hon Herma Hembe, Hon Jagaba Adams, Hon Timothy Golu, Hon Yunusa Ahmad Abubakar, Hon Mukaila Olayiwola Kazzim, Hon Lynda Chuba Ikpeazu, Hon Abdulrazak Namdas, Hon Osai Nicolas Osai, among others.

According to him, he had broken the list into batches to make the work easier for the anti-graft agencies adding that he would be sending the names in batches of 50 until the list is exhausted.
He disclosed that he deliberately included the name of Hon Osai Chairman Ethics Commiittee who wrote the report that suspended me from the House on the grounds that he lied over his allegations that there existed monumental systemic corruption in the House.

He warned Nigerians to be very vigilant because as investigative hearings being orchestrated by the House of Representatives are intended to blackmail the executive arm and force them not to act on the allegations. He revealed that ad hoc committees were always used in the past to settle aggrieved members as it provided avenues to collect bribes. .

Honourable Jubrin Mumin therefore urged Nigerians and the Executive Arm of government to stand up against any blackmail from the Speaker Yakubu Dogara-led House of Representatives as they were all antics to evade investigation and prosecution.

Dr Jubrin Abdulmumin put his integrity on the line by asking the Federal Government to make him face the harshest punishment prescribed by our laws if his allegations were found to be false.
