Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has faulted the claim by the Speaker of House of Representatives Mr Yakubu Dogara that “budget padding is not a crime under Nigerian law.”
Mr Dogara said this after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa last week. According to him, “Budget padding is not an offence. What is padding? I studied law and I have been in the legislature and all this period I have never heard of the word padding being an offence under any law…Why should I be worried. As far as I am concerned, I am not worried over anything.”

Jibrin and Dogara: Allies Torn apart  by budget padding scandal 

Former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has accused Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara and 12 others of planning to kill him.

In a statement he released on Sunday evening, Jibrin said he no longer feels safe as Dogara and others he accused of illegally inserting N40b into the 2016 budget have perfected plans to eliminate him.

”I believe Speaker Dogara, the 12 others and some vested interest within and outside the House want to kill me. I no longer feel safe. I have carefully followed their desperation to suppress what will go down in history as the biggest corruption case in Nigeria. I have prepared myself for any eventuality. I have spoken to my mum and dad extensively during the weekend. I have prepared my family. I have handed over a handwritten note and documents to a popular SAN, a man of integrity and other persons that I believe will lay it bare even if they succeed in killing me,” Jibrin stated.

WHAT???? A 6 Year-Old Girl Forced To Marry 55-Year-Old Man In Exchange For A Goat?


Yes you read right. A 6-year-old Afghan girl, Gharibgol has been sold into marriage after her father allegedly exchanged her for a goat, rice, tea, sugar and cooking oil.

According to the father, he and his family were desperate for food and by selling his daughter he had one less mouth to feed. He also insisted that the new husband of the girl had sworn not to have sex with her until she turned 18. After the wedding, Abdolkarim reportedly took the girl to a relative’s house in Firozkoh, in Ghor province, pretending she was his daughter. But the concerned relative raised the alarm, insisting Abdolkarim was undressing her at night. Abdolkarim then told a relative saying: “No she’s my wife, her father gave her to me.”

Revelations have emerged on why President Muhammadu Buhari sacked erstwhile registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), Professor ‘Dibu Ojerinde. The former chief executive of JAMB was replaced by Ishaq Oloyede alongside other appointments by the federal government recently. Reports from those close to information informed Daily Post that a fight between Ojerinde and minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu over the 2016 admission exercise into universities and other tertiary institutions led to the termination of the former’s contract. And when the post-Universities Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was canceled by the minister, it was obvious that trouble was looming.
