The House of Representatives on Wednesday suspended its former Chairman, Appropriations Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin, from the parliament for 180 legislative days (roughly one year).
He was also banned from holding any position of responsibility in the House for the rest of the 8th National Assembly.
In addition, he would tender a written apology to the House on resumption from suspension.
This followed the adoption of the report of the House Committee on Ethics and Privileges which investigated allegations of breach of privileges of the House and its members by Jibrin.
The suspended lawmaker had soon after his removal as chairman, Appropriations Committee, accused the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara; the Deputy Speaker, Yussuff Lasun; Whip, Alhassan Doguwa, and Minority Leader, Leo Ogor, alongside some committee chairmen of budget fraud.
He also accused his colleagues of systemic corruption which he said he had a divine mandate to expose with a view to engineering reforms.
His public statements angered members of the House who were then observing their annual recess.
