Abuja - The former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation Abdulmumin Jibrin, has accused two governors and three former members of the House, of preventing him from meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He alleged that their action was part of a plot to provide a soft landing for the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.
Jibrin who made the allegations in a statement did not name the governors or the former House of Rep members.
His statement was released on Sunday just as the Transparency Group in the House told journalists that members would meet on Monday to review their strategy.
According to Jibrin, the governors had blocked him from having access to President Buhari to tell him his version of the crisis as Dogara did last week.
He had earlier made more shocking revelations on how 10 standing committees secretly injected constituency projects worth N284 billion into the 2016 budget without the knowledge of the House according to News24.
He also claimed that the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, allegedly convinced him to ship over N20 billion into the budget through Service Wide Vote.
In a statement issued in Abuja, Jibrin alleged that some cabals had hijacked the Speaker to always do their bidding.
He, however, said the Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, and three other principal officers were not part of the secret deal, adding that the budget inputs inserted on their names were exclusively carried out by the speaker, his deputy, Yussuff Lasun; Chief Whip, Ado Doguwa and the Minority Leader, Leo Ogor.
