Suspended Reps Member Jibrin Meets With Buhari After 1year and 6months (photo)
President Buhari has met with a suspended member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin.
The meeting, which lasted for about two and half hours on Thursday, comes one year and four months after the lawmaker was suspended from taking part in the proceedings at the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
Shortly after the meeting, Jibrin told State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa in Abuja that the discussion with President Buhari was private.
On the issue of his suspension, he said: “Well, I cannot comment in that regard.”
“The most important is that I saw him and he is in a very high spirit; I greeted him like a son and he spoke to me like a father,” he added.
The lawmaker, who represents Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency of Kano State, was once the Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation before his suspension.
