Embattled Chairman of the House committee on appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin has announced that he will not apologise to anybody.

Jibrin said “Let me say, I will never ever apologise to anybody in the house of representatives, I did not commit any offence, I did not abuse my office. I have said it repeatedly that in the five years that I have served in the house of representatives, I have never corruptedly enriched myself.”

This is coming on the heels of the lawmaker’s suspension from the Green Chambers for 180 days.

Jibrin also said “The most important thing is that Nigerians saw the entire process, how the motion was passed and what transpired at the level of the ethics committee and entirely the process was flawed and for me it’s a non-issue and complete nonsense and it is not going to stand anywhere in the world.

 “As you are aware the matter is a subject of litigation, I have instructed my lawyer, Femi Falana SAN to file charges of contempt against Speaker Dogara and of course the house of representatives and I’m sure the matter will move over to the judiciary and decision will be taken. I’m pretty sure it will be in my favour.”

The lawmaker also raised 15 important issues shortly after his suspension from the House of Representatives.
