Just in: Jibrin suspended for 180 days


The House of Representatives on Wednesday suspended the former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin for 180 legislative days over his budget padding allegations.

Jibrin’s suspension is expected to last for more than a year, as the House seats only three days in a week.

The Ethics Committee Chairman, Mr. Ossai said Jibrin’s failure to appear before his “properly and constitutionally constituted committee” was a defence.
