“I am here to submit a formal petition and give further clarification and insights on allegations of corruption abuse of trust and office by Mr speaker Yakubu Dogara, the deputy speaker of house, Yusuf Lasun, the whip of the house, Alhassan Doguwa and the minority leader of the house Leo Ogor and nine other members of the House who are also chairmen of different other committees. We have submitted the petition.
“The chairman of the commission received us in person and we exchanged a couple of ideas on how to move forward. I hope to see a very quick commencement of investigation so that these corrupt set of Nigerians can be prosecuted in earnest and if found guilty sent to jail immediately so that it will send a very powerful signal of the anti-corruption fight of this government.” he said
