Jibrin's Suspension is Not Yet Over – House of Reps

House of Representatives said on Thursday that it is not yet time for Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin to resume just as he is yet to fulfil the major condition set for him before he could return to the House.

The House had on September 28 last year suspended Jibrin for 181 legislative days.

The House also set a condition that the suspended lawmaker must apologize for "embarrassing" his colleagues in the media.

But one year after, Jibrin is yet to apologize, spokesman of the House Abdulrazak Namdas (APC, Adamawa) told journalists in Abuja yesterday.

Asked if Jibrin's suspension period was over, Namdas said: "I talked with the chairman of the ethics and privileges committee, and he said the period is not yet over.

"Besides, when we passed the resolution, we said he (Jibrin) should apologize before the expiration of his suspension period, but he is yet to do that. If he does that, it'll be known by everybody because it'll be public," he said.

Namdas could not give the exact date for Jibrin's resumption.

But Jibrin, in a reaction through his media aide, Godwin Onyeacholem, said he viewed Namdas’ comments as "insensitive and insult" to the people of his Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency.
