Hon. Jibrin was on Wednesday suspended for 180 legislative days over budget padding allegation he levelled against the hollow chamber’s principal officers.

Reacting to his suspension in a statement he released on Saturday, the Kano-born politician said, “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.”

He said further: “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.”
