Suspended Lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin Wins Anti-Corruption Award in London [Photos]

Suspended lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin, over the weekend won the African Voice Leadership in Legislative Governance Awards 2016 for his commitment to legislative duties and fight against corruption in Nigeria. The award took place at the Banqueting Venue, London on Saturday and he was accompanied by his wife Maryam.

Speaking after receiving the award, Jibrin said

 “Thank you African Voice Newspaper for this award. The award is a huge morale booster because it is coming at a very difficult and challenging period. It’s a period I had to leave my post as Appropriation chairman of the House of Representatives, suspended through subterranean means by Speaker Yakubu Dogara and received several threats to my life by the highly placed public officials I accused of corruption. My offence is disagreeing with some corrupt leaders of the House including the Speaker over the 2016 budget fraud and insisting that the right thing must be done,  exposing individual and systemic corruption in the House and rejecting immunity for Principal officers of the House. 
Despite the difficulties I am going through, I will never be cowed to silence. I assure you I will never retreat from this worthy line of action. I shall remain committed to the fight against corruption in the House of Representatives and Nigeria as a whole. I dedicate this award to millions of Nigerians home and abroad who are suffering today because of the massive theft of our common wealth, budget fraud and monumental corruption in the House of Representatives which assumed an unprecedented dimension under the leadership of Speaker Yakubu Dogara.”
