House of Reps seals Jibrin’s office after suspension
The House of Representatives has sealed Abdulmumin Jibrin’s office, a day after suspending the lawmaker for allegedly breaching the privileges of other house members.
The house found Mr. Jibrin guilty of violating House ethics on Wednesday.
Mr. Jibrin, a former chairman of the house appropriation committee, drew the wrath of his colleague members after he accused the speaker, Yakubu Dogara, and three other members of budget fraud.
The allegations, followed by the lawmaker’s release of dozens of National Assembly internal memos, have not been investigated.
Mr. Jibrin was instead accused of denting the image of the house and failing to follow the appropriate channels to lay his complaint.
The Clerk of the House led security personnel to Mr. Jibrin’s office Thursday afternoon, and together, they carefully sealed it off with barricade tapes.
The suspension will last for 180 legislative days, that is, approximately one calendar year as the house sits three times weekly.
The House also resolved not to allow Mr. Jibrin hold any position of responsibility for the span of the current eigth National Assembly and also ordered him to write a formal letter of apology.
In the course of his suspension, Mr. Jibrin will not be allowed into the premises of the National Assembly, which includes the Nigerian Senate. His salaries and allowances have also been stopped.
Mr. Jibrin remained unfazed in a statement Wednesday night, describing the process that led to his suspension as flawed and vowing to reverse it in the court of law.
