There seems to be no let up to the 2016 Budget scandal rocking the House of Representatives. Over 100 members yesterday joined the fray calling for “an external investigation with a view to finding out if our Principal Officers are guilty or not”.

They did not state if the probe should be by auditors or the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC). Also yesterday, former Head of State Gen. Yakubu Gowon called for “stiff penalty” for anyone found guilty of the padding.

Former Appropriations Committee Chairman Abdulmumin Jibrin blew the lid on the scandal following his removal last week by Speaker Yakubu Dogara.
