The House of Representatives has lifted a suspension it placed on a member of the House from Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency in Kano Abdulmumin Jibrin .
This followed a letter signed by Abdulmumin Jibrin , allegedly apologizing to the House.
Although the letter wasn’t fully read before the parliament, the speaker paraphrased it by saying he has apologized and met all the conditions given to him.
“He has fulfilled all the conditions by writing this letter and so he is free to resume his legislative duties whenever he wants, if he so wishes”
Abdulmumin Jibrin was suspended in 2017 for a period of 180 legislative days for ‘unfolding’ budget padding scandal in the legislature.
His suspension however lasted for more than the stipulated 180 legislative days which is equivalent to one year.
