A multi million naira mansion erected at the highbrow Wuse area of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja has been linked to Hon. Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the lower chamber.
All Progressives Congress chieftain, Yakubu Dogara who has been heavily robed in a budget padding saga in the House of Representatives has been in the news since last week following revelations by his former ally, Abdulmunin Jibrin, sacked Chairman of House Committee on Appropriation.
Jibrin alleged that Speaker Yakubu Dogara and three others fraudulently shortchanged the House of Representatives and abused their offices by unilaterally taking away 40 billion Naira out of the 100 billion Naira allocated for constituency projects and distributing same to themselves and the trio of Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, House Whip Alhassan Ado Doguwa and Minority Leader Leo Ogor without approval of the House.
This staggering allegation followed by petitions to security operatives for the prosecution of principal members of the House of Reps has directed the corruption searchlight on Dogara whose assets have graced public domain for scrutiny.
Online newspaper, Sahara reporters have exposed a multi-million naira landed property of the embattled Bauchi legislator which was suspicious built at the highly expensive Persian Gulf close, Wuse II area of Abuja within 6 months of Dogara’s Speakership.
Yakubu Dogara, 48 has been Speaker of the House of Representatives of Nigeria since 2015. In the House of Representatives, he represents Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa-Balewa Federal constituency of Bauchi State
