The House of Representatives has lifted the suspension placed on Abdulmumin Jibrin, the former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Kano-APC.
This followed a letter of apology signed by Jibrin which was presented by Yakubu Dogara, the speaker of the House, at the plenary on Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
Jibrin was suspended in 2017 for 180 legislative days, for allegedly exposing “budget padding” scandal in the legislative arm of government.
While presenting the letter, Dogara said that the suspended legislator had met all the conditions necessary for him to resume his duties.
Dogara said that the lawmaker was free to resume his legislative duties whenever he so wished.
The controversial lawmaker recently met with President Muhammadu Buhari after several attempts had been blocked by “the cabal”, according to him.
