CIVIL society organisation, Civil Nigeria Society Desk, has called for the immediate prosecution of the former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation and Budgetary Matters, Abdulmumin Jibrin. The group in a statement signed by its National Coordinatoor and Secretary, Emeh Friday Eleojo Ijewa, and Zeb Obioma, respectively,‎ alleged that the former House Committee chairman violated a very important portion of the rules guiding the code of conduct of members and business of the National Assembly – whether in the Senate or in the House. The group insisted that Jibrin’s actions amounts to betrayal of trust, backstab, indiscipline and total disregard of the high values which Nigerians and the constitution placed on those elected as members of the legislature.
They regretted that the position of the APC leadership not to sanction Jibrin was in bad taste “because the speaker, ab initio, had nothing to worry about. It is Jibrin that should have all the worry to do. He should bear the consequences of his greed and indiscipline. He could not have been ignorant of what he was doing when he almost threw the nation into chaos; with intent to embarrass the executive. APC should not accommodate this height of rascality by shielding
Jibrin. He has set a bad example by showcasing the bad–looser syndrome through excessive manifestation of desperation”. The group also warned that if Jibrin is allowed to go scot free with the level of bad image he has created for the legislature; whereby Nigerians nearly lost trust and confidence in the leadership of the National Assembly and the members they elected, it would be a big regret when other people tow the same line in future
