Nigeria’s lower legislature has suspended one of her member and former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, for 180 sitting days.
His suspension came as a result of allegedly breaching the practices and precedents of the House of Representatives. This was accusation he did against the speaker of the house Yakubu Dogara and other members of the house, that they are were responsible for the budget padding.
The House has therefore said that Jibrin is also required to tender a formal written apology to the House, before his future resumption of duties.
He is also barred from positions of authority in the House till the end of the 8th assembly.
