The Niger Delta Budget Monitoring Group, NDEBUMOG has demanded the resignation of the Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara and all the principal officers mentioned in the N40 billion budget padding scandal.
Below is NDEBUMOG statement.
“We at the Niger Delta Budget Monitoring Group, NDEBUMOG, are worried over the shocking and scandalous revelations on Speaker Yakubu Dogara’s involvement in the padding of the 2016 budget. It is shameful that such attempt to defraud the country of a whooping N40b through the manipulation of the budget could be contemplated by elected officers under a government that has promised to crush corruption and at a period the government has been complaining of dwindling revenues. It is a gross abuse of office and a betrayal of trust.
