Embattled member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has announced that he will use his suspension period to lecture.

According to reports, Jibrin lectured briefly at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, before he went into politics in 2011.

The former Chairman of the House appropriation committee was recently suspended from the Green Chamber for 180 legislative days.

Jibrin also said he will use the time to write a memoir.

He said “I will use this period to convert my memoir into a book, teach at the university and enrol for a second PhD with research focus on Economic Diversification.”

“I will celebrate the 56th independence of Nigeria by further exposing systemic corruption using running cost/allowances of the House of Representatives. The amount (about N10 million) received monthly at present by members is the least since the regime of this fraud called running cost started.

“At various times in the past, members received between about N10 to N20 million averagely per month and often pocketed the money. I am always telling my colleagues in the House that only international footballers like Mikel Obi are known to legally earn such colossal amount monthly.

“Anybody who can reach Mr President should inform him that in the face of threats to my life and that of my family, one of the security agencies has withdrawn its officers protecting me. This has made me vulnerable. I have however taken my destiny in my own hands. It is a struggle I am committed to and no amount of threats or intimidation will deter me,” he added.
