Suspended member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin has debunked reports saying that he has been expelled from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Jibrin also described the news as another round of character assassinations from career political antagonizers who are threatened by his advocacy for transparency.

The embattled Rep member was recently invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to shed more light on the budget padding allegations which he levelled against the House Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.

Jibrin, in a statement which he sent to Pulse News, said "My attention has been drawn to a false claim attributed to some mischievous impersonators that I've been expelled from my party, the All Progressives Congress, at the Local Government branch. 

"This report, I've gathered, came from a dubious character and known fraudster who is neither the chairman of my party at the local government level nor a part of the party executive at the state level. The party is not even aware of this impersonation making the rounds in the media. 

"This is yet another round of character assassinations from career political antagonizers who are perpetually threatened by our advocacy for transparency in public service and political leadership. 

"Recall that I honored the invitation of the EFCC in a bid to shed light on the cases of corruption perpetrated by some principal officers of the house of representatives, despite dissuasions by these saboteurs of my party's change agenda and stand against corruption.

"The initiators of this false claim of my expulsion by my party are hired hacks engaged by some politicians in Abuja in continuation of their futile bids to frustrate my anti-corruption campaigns.

" I wish to remind the public, and especially the media, that this report did not originate from my party, the APC. I have a cordial relationship with my party, and we have been working hand in hand to actualize our agenda for a better Nigeria. "

Meanwhile, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has said that the National Assembly has the right to alter the budget.
