Budget Padding: Reps lift suspension on Abdulmumin Jibrin

Hon, Abdulmumin Jibrin

Following  a letter signed by the suspended  Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin where  allegedly apologized  to the lower chamber over budget padding issue which led to his suspension, the house of reps today lift the suspension it placed on him

The former Chairman of House appropriation committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin  was suspended for 180 legislative days following budget padding scandal

Although the letter was not fully read before the lawmakers, Speaker Yakubu Dogara, however, paraphrased it by saying Hon. Jibrin 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”


His suspension however lasted for more than the stipulated 180 legislative days which is equivalent to one year.
