But the Chief Whip of the House, Mr. Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, has described Jibrin’s words as “rubbish”.
Ado-Doguwa, told Punch that members expected that Jibrin would keep reeling out more allegations, in spite of being on suspension.
He said: “Let him say whatever rubbish he wants to say.
“I am sure Nigerians are now realising the truth in Jibrin’s stupidity.
“His suspension serves him right. We could not have done anything less.”
