A former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin, says he will not be bothered if his colleagues at the House of Representatives suspend him when the House resumes on Tuesday.
Jibrin said this during a live television programme titled, ‘Politics Today’ on Channels TV.
He said, “On the issue of suspension I am less bothered. Perhaps that is the sacrifice I will have to make for the country and for us to be able to deal with the issues of corruption in the House but I doubt very much that the 360 members, having followed the events of last two months, and of course the letter I wrote to each member last week, I doubt very much if they will go on the floor of the House and start talking about suspending me.”
According to the lawmaker, even if he is suspended, he will continue to fight corruption and ensure that the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, and three other principal officers in the House are brought to justice.
Jibrin said, “Whatever happens on Tuesday and the rest of the days we want to spend in the House before the end of the year, one thing is certain and I say this without any element of contradiction; I will continue to pursue this issue until justice is served on Speaker Dogara and other principal officers whether I am suspended or not.”
