Hon Abdulmumin Jubrin says his lawyers are filing a suit against the Speaker and the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, over his suspension from the house.
“I have instructed my lawyer, Femi Falana SAN to file charges of contempt against Speaker Dogara and of course the House of Representatives and I’m sure the matter will move over to the judiciary and decision will be taken.”
He also says the position of the House about him doesn’t change the facts of his accusations. And that he’ll engage civil societies and the press in his fight for justice to be served.
“Has it changed the fact that the speaker conspired with other principal officers to divert N40 billion out of N100 billion meant for constituency projects. Has it changed the fact that he inserted fraudulent projects worth 20 billion? Has it changed the fact that he diverted multi-million naira project to his personal farm? Has it changed the fact that he tried to use the running cost — money meant for running the offices of members — for a questionable mortgage? Has it changed the fact that he diverted FGN project to his farm?”
The House of Representatives suspended Hon Jubrin for 180 sitting and barred him from positions of authority in the House till the end of the 8th assembly. This was based on the recommendation of Ethics and Privileges committee that looked into his statements he made against the some principal members of the Lower chamber.
