House of Reps suspends Jibrin

Nigeria’s House of Representatives, on Wednesday, suspended embattled former chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin for 180 legislative days and prohibited him from holding any position of responsibility for the remainder of his term.

Nicholas Ossai, Chairman of the House Committee on Ethics and Privileges recommended the motion for the suspension of the Kano state lawmaker, which was adopted by the whole house.

With this suspension, Jibrin will be prohibited from the premises of the National Assembly and he would not receive salaries or allowances thoughout the duration of the punishment.

Since the House sits three times a week, it implies that Jibrin’s suspension will last for more than a year.
