“House Right To Suspend Jibrin”– Rep. Sam Onuigbo

By Ikenga Chronicles October 3, 2016

The House Committee Chairman on Climate Change, and member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North and South Federal Constituency Rep. Samuel Onuigbo has stated that the House of Representatives was right to suspend Hon. Abdul Mumini Jibrin.

Hon. Jibrin who had drawn controversy to the House for making allegations of budget padding was suspended by the House last week, for 180 days. Onuigbo however feels it was the right decision. In an interview granted to Ikenga Chronicles, the revered House member stated that;

“The House of Representatives is a part of the legislative arm, with the Senate making up the second part. Without the legislative arm, you won’t have a representative government. So it is a key part of government. Therefore, if anyone is found to have breached the laws of such an institution, the person should be made to take an exit and purge himself of such excesses. When President Obama visited Africa in 2009, he stated that we are no longer looking for big men, but rather for big institutions. That is what we are making the legislative arm to become–a big institution.”

Hon. Jibrin has however made known that he plans to fight the suspension in court.
