We Will Not Intervene In The Budget Padding Scandal – APC Governors

The governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, have said they would not intervene in the current budget-padding scandal rocking the House of Representatives.


The governors had last week met President Muhammadu Buhari and obtained permission from the president to mediate in the crisis.


Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State stated this during a chat with journalists in Abuja.


“I assure you that we are not going to delve into cases that are before the courts or tribunal. We are not going to delve into the current issue of the moment. We are only going to touch on the political issues pertaining to the National Assembly.


“What is before the court, those of us who are lawyers, know that it is subjudice and the current issue is just coming up and it is not politics.


“As far as I am concerned, if any proof is found to any of the allegations, these are criminal offences. So, there is no way any committee of governors can delve into that, I assure you,” he stated.
