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 enrol 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his suspension, one of the security agencies that had sent personnel to protect him due to threats to his life had withdrawn them.

“I will celebrate the 56th independence of Nigeria by further exposing systemic corruption using running cost/allowances of the House of Representatives. The amount (about N10 million) received monthly at present by members is the least since the regime of this fraud called running cost started.

“At various times in the past, members received between about N10 to N20 million averagely per month and often pocketed the money. I am always telling my colleagues in the House that only international footballers like Mikel Obi are known to legally earn such colossal amount monthly.

“Anybody who can reach Mr President should inform him that in the face of threats to my life and that of my family, one of the security agencies has withdrawn its officers protecting me. This has made me vulnerable. I have however taken my destiny in my own hands. It is a struggle I am committed to and no amount of threats or intimidation will deter me,” 
he said.
Jibrin had a fall-out with his fellow House of Representatives Speaker, Yakubu Dogara after he was sacked as the Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation earlier this year. This culminated into a furore that later led to his abrupt suspension.
