Suspended Legislator Threaten To Open Can Of Worms In House Of Rep

Suspended official, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Thursday gave his partners in the House of Representatives three days to give back every sketchy stipend they paid themselves, Premium Times reports.

Mr. Jibrin said any legislator who neglects his call should be prepared for backlash which will after he distributes subtle elements of how such authority executed the misrepresentation. 

Mr. Jibrin's announcement came a day after he was suspended by the House for 180 authoritative days — roughly a full schedule year as the House sits three times each week—in the wake of being discovered liable of disregarding House morals and legislators' benefits. 

It likewise came a month after Mr. Jibrin blamed his partners for raking in millions in illicit stipends, and after he prosecuted himself as having gotten N650 million unlawfully. 

To give back their plunder, Mr. Jibrin prompted his partners to exclusively approach the proper power and make game plan on the best way to pay everything once more into the government handbag. 

"I have kept in touch with the Clerk of the National Assembly to remain by in expectation," Mr. Jibrin said. "Even with the income challenges and gnawing hardship the nation is presently confronting, there is no better time the nation needs such cash than now." 

Mr. Jibrin said he made plans to make this move in the wake of accepting various enquiries from various corners on the requirement for him to back his assertions against the House administration and different officials with proof. 

"I have gone under serious open examination and weight to demonstrate that there exists systemic debasement in the House," Mr. Jibrin said. 

Mr. Jibrin said he was particularly requesting the arrival of a N10 million illicit recompenses his partners designated to themselves while the poor were attempting to bring home the bacon. 

House representative, Abdulrazak Namdas, did not react to PREMIUM TIMES' ask for input Thursday night. 

Mr. Jibrin had as often as possible undermined to discharge "stunning" insights about misrepresentation in the House since he initially blamed Speaker Yakubu Dogara for spending extortion more than two months back. 

On August 27, Mr. Jibrin said he had recognized two governors attempting to shield Mr. Dogara from indictment and pledged to uncover their characters. He has yet to do as such. 

Likewise, Mr. Jibrin said on September 19 that he was discharging a few disclosures "that will send stun down the spines of Nigerians". He hasn't done that, either. 

Mr. Jibrin said the procedure that prompted his suspension was imperfect and promised to turn around it in the courtroom.
