Fate of Suspended Abdulmumin Jibrin’s Return to House of Reps Left in Uncertainty as 180 Days Elapses

The 180 legislative sitting days which member of House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin was suspended by the lawmakers, has elapsed as his fate to return to work, is still not yet certain.

The fate of Abdulmumin Jibrin, the suspended member of the House of Representatives for Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency of Kano State, will be decided after the House reconvenes next week, Premium Times reports.

Recall that Jibrin was suspended for 180 legislative days on September 28 last year over what members described as breach of their privileges.

Jibrin, who was removed as chairman of House Apropriation Committee, had accused the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, and three other principal officers of padding the 2016 federal budget.

180 legislative sitting days amount to a period of one year as the House only conducts plenary sessions three days in a week.

Jibrin was also required to tender a written apology to the House, prior to his resumption of duties which will be due on September 27.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the house, Abdulrazak Namdas, said that the fate of Jibrin will be decided by the entire members. “When the House reconvenes, a decision will be taken to that regard,” he said.

On whether the conditions given for his return may be waved, Namdas said “that will be determined by the Ethics and Privileges Committee who proposed it at the first place”.

Efforts to reach the embattled lawmaker were not successful as he neither picked his calls nor responded to text messages.

However, Jibrin had told journalists shortly after he was suspended last year that he would never apologise to anybody in the House because he believed that he did nothing wrong.

“For me, it’s a non-issue and complete nonsense and it is not going to stand anywhere in the world,” he had said.
