The representative also disclosed plans by the accused members of the House of blackmailing the whole process and warning officials not to get involved as the budget padding scandal will bring the country to its knees. He said the allegations and case is simply against the principal officials and nine others.
He said, “this cabal of two governors and three former members have blocked every avenue that I can use to reach the President so that he can get a different perspective on this issue. I am therefore left with no choice than to plead with all our former Heads of State; Gen Yakubu Gowon, Gen Olusegun Obasanjo, Alh Shehu Shagari, Gen Ibrahim Babangida, Chief Enest Shonekan, Gen Abdulsalam Abubakar and Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
He continued, “the diplomatic community, Ambassador of the United States of America,High Commissioner of United Kingdom, the German and French Ambassadors and all well-meaning Nigerians to join in the call on the corrupt and fraudulent Speaker Dogara and three others to reconvene the House immediately, step aside and allow for external investigation and also call on the anti-corruption agencies to expedite action on investigation and commencement of prosecution in line with the anti corruption stands of this government.”
