The former chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, who was slammed with a 180-day suspension last week, has said that he would go back to lecturing.
Jibrin, who was suspended on Wednesday for “breaching the privileges of his colleagues through his various corruption allegations” said he would also use the period to enroll for another programme.
A DailyTrust correspondent reports that Jibrin had a stint in lecturing at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, before venturing into politics in 2011, winning a seat to represent Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency of Kano State in the House.
“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,” Jibrin said yesterday in a statement.
He also alleged that each member of the House collects about N20 million monthly as running cost and allowances, which according to him, they use for personal benefits.
He added that following his suspension, one of the security agencies that had sent personnel to protect him due to threats to his life had withdrawn them.
