Hon. Jibrin Reacts: "My Suspension Is Complete Nonsense"

Former House of Reps Appropriations Committee Chairman, Abdulmumin Jibrin on Wednesday said his 180 days legislative suspension by the House of Representatives will not stand.

Jibrin wondered why allegations against Dogara are not being addressed. Speaking on his suspension, he said, “It is a non-issue and complete nonsense and it is not going to stand anywhere in the world.

“As you are aware, the matter is a subject of litigation, I have instructed my lawyer, Femi Falana SAN to file charges of contempt against Speaker Dogara and of course the House of Representatives and I’m sure the matter will move over to the judiciary and decision will be taken. I’m pretty sure it will be in my favour.”

He added, “What is very important also is that now they have done their worst, they have suspended me, what has it changed? Has it changed the fact that the speaker conspired with other principal officers to divert N40 billion out of N100 billion meant for constituency projects.”
