The former Chairman of the House committee on appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin has revealed that he is not bothered by threats that he might be suspended from the Green Chambers.

Jibrin said he will take it as the sacrifice he has to pay to ensure that corruption is stamped out of the country.

The lawmaker also promised to pursue the budget padding allegation till justice is served and the truth comes out.

Jibrin said “On the issue of suspension I am less bothered. Perhaps that is the sacrifice I will have to make for the country and for us to be able to deal with the issues of corruption in the House but I doubt very much that the 360 members, having followed the events of last two months, and of course the letter I wrote to each member last week, I doubt very much if they will go on the floor of the House and start talking about suspending me.”

Adding that “Whatever happens on Tuesday and the rest of the days we want to spend in the House before the end of the year, one thing is certain and I say this without any element of contradiction; I will continue to pursue this issue until justice is served on Speaker Dogara and other principal officers whether I am suspended or not.”

Jibrin also denied allegations that he lodged £1.558m in a bank in the United Kingdom.
