Dogara says Jibrin won’t succeed in attempt to pull down House of Reps

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has stated that the former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin, is out to destroy the Lower Chamber as an institution, but he will not succeed.
In his speech delivered on Wednesday to welcome Reps members from their annual recess, Dogara stated that the House would not be distracted by “any insidious antics, however, well-orchestrated, and falsehoods, however, cleverly propagated to confuse Nigerians.”
He averred that the Lower Chamber will rather as public servants, remain accountable to Nigerians for the conduct of their representatives, pointing out that the plenary was “not the appropriate venue to address allegations made against individual honourable members, many of which are criminal in nature.”
