Budget Padding is Not an Offence? Dogara Vows Not to Resign as He Meets Buhari Behind Closed-door

House of Reps speaker, Yakubu Dogara, has spilled some tea when approached by State House press after meeting this afternoon behind closed door with President Buhari. 

As the budget padding scandal continue to rock the lower legislative chamber, embattled Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Friday, met President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential villa, Abuja.
It was learnt that the speaker came into the Villa at about 2:25 pm and went straight into the president’s office.
Speaking with state house reporters as he emerged from the closed-door meeting at exactly 2:58 pm, Dogara said budget padding is not an offence and vowing not to step down from office despite growing calls on him to do so.
Premium Times reported that when approached by State House press on the allegations of budget padding levelled against him by the former chairman of the Appropriation committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin, Speaker Dogara simply said;

"I am a lawyer and have been a legislator for a while, I never knew of an offence called budget padding,"he said, adding that budget padding is not an offence against any Nigerian law.
He also said since he has not committed any offence, so the question of him resigning “does not even arise.”
