Abuja - In reaction to his 180 day long suspension, former House Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has claimed that the process leading to his suspension was flawed.
According to a Punch report, Jibrin lashed out following the development, stating that "it is a non-issue and complete nonsense and it is not going to stand anywhere in the world.

I’m pretty sure it will be in my favour," he said.
