The Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Doguwa, has said that former Appropriations Committee Chairman, Abdulmumin Jibrin is a psychiatric case.

Doguwa made the comment in response to Jibrin’s call for his resignation over the budget padding scandal.

“It is now high time Nigerians and indeed our press disregarded and ignored any statement or communication coming from Abdulmumin Jibrin, the sacked Appropriation Committee Chairman,” Doguwa said.

“He has already lost moral conscience. He has now realized that he is fighting a lost battle with no single reasonable member behind him. We as a leadership have succeeded in consolidating our support base in the House, with over 300 respected members willingly signing the vote of confidence roll.

“When we resume on Tuesday, the House will not even waste its valuable time discussing Jibrin’s issue.We would rather continue with more important legislative issues that would impact positively on our economy and the people we represent.

“I, therefore, on behalf of the leadership of the House wish to call on all our well-meaning members to disregard the so called letters sent to them by Abdulmimin Jibrin, whom we have all condemned and believed has lost his common sense.

“He is just a psychiatric case that everyone must condemn. Members must remain focused and never allow themselves to get distracted by the nuisance Jibrin,” he added.
