Reps lifts suspension on Abdulmumin Jibrin
3 months ago Admin 0
The House of Representatives on Tuesday has lifted a suspension it placed on Abdulmumin Jibrin, a member of the House from Kano State.
This followed a letter signed by Mr Jibrin, allegedly apologising to the House.
Although the letter wasn’t fully read before the parliament, the speaker paraphrased it by saying he has apologised and met all the conditions given to him.
“He has fulfilled all the conditions by writing this letter and so he is free to resume his legislative duties whenever he wants if he so wishes”
Mr Jibrin, a former chairman of the committee on Appropriation was suspended in 2017 for a period of 180 legislative days from the House for accusing principal officers of the House of Representatives, including Speaker Yakubu Dogara, for ‘unfolding’ budget padding scandal in the legislature for the 2016 national budget.
His suspension however lasted for more than the stipulated 180 legislative days which is equivalent to one year.
