Suspended Kano lawmaker Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin has hit out at the House of Representatives for lifting his suspension just for him to appear before an ethics committee.
In a statement released late on Wednesday, December 7, Jibrin attacked his colleagues after they passed a motion on Wednesday saying his suspension should be lifted just for 24 hours to allow him answer petitions that the Ethics committee received.
Jibrin claimed that the motion was sponsored by Dogara and so were the petitions that he said originated from ‘a nonentity’.
Jibrin wondered why the same committee refused to consider petitions against Dogara about massive fraud yet wanted to grill him about petitions on absenteeism and reportedly owning foreign accounts.
Jibrin claimed that the lifting of his suspension by the House was because of Dogara’s desperation since security agencies investigating the budget padding scandal have reached an important stage.
According to him, the security agencies have already frozen the accounts of some of the leaders of the house of assembly.
