Mohammed Zakari, the Chairman of the House Committee on Basic Education faulted Jibrin’s claim that he was one of those involved in budget padding.
He said , I worked as a civil servant for 14 years with outstanding records, before joining politics. I cannot allow a desperado, who is also a gold digger, to rubbish my impeccable integrity.
Mohammed Zakari said, this is my 5th year in the National Assembly I have never heard of a budget being padded. What a sitting President brings to the National Assembly, according to Section 80(1) and (2) of the 1999 Constitution is an estimate which the Legislature is expected to consider and assist the Executive in reviewing appropriations for its plans and projects for the country.
He ask Jibrin should look elsewhere for his prey,he held every member in contempt and arrogated usurped powers to himself.
