Vanguard newspaper reports that for the second time this week, the House of Representatives went figuratively up in flames yesterday when allegations of a $50,000 bring to PDP members (to suppress the house inquest into the alleged $9.3 million cash seized by South Africa) went public.

The House went into uproar when a member of the house, Rep. Ali Madaki of Kano APC admitted to being the one who leaked the story of the bribe. He however said the bribe amount was $20,000 and not the $50,000 reported yesterday by a national newspaper.

PDP deputy leader in the House, Rep. Leo Ogor, yesterday, has however challenged the allegation, describing it as blackmail, unparliamentary and an embarrassment to the house.

At any rate, the house has directed its committee to look into the fresh scam allegation and prepare a report within two weeks.

To the consternation of members, Madaki confessed that he was the person that broke the bribery allegations to the press. He confirmed that he told a journalist that he had it on good authority “that PDP members were given $20,000 each.”

He maintained that what he told the journalist over the telephone about the bribe was that he was aware that each of the PDP members was bribed $20,000 but not $50,000 as was reported.
