Suspended Jibrin Wins Anti Corruption Award

AwardAbdulmumin Jibrin has won an award for his anti corruption efforts, particularly for exposing budget fraud in the House of Representatives.

According to statement by his office, the suspended lawmaker was honoured on Saturday by the London-based African Voice newspaper. This was at its 20th Leadership and Legislative Awards investiture held in London.

Jibrin quoted the newspaper as saying, “Your effort in helping to eradicate corruption is commendable.”

A Morale Booster

Meanwhile, Jibrin thanked the organisers after receiving the award. He said the accolade will further encourage him in his quest to defeat fraud in Nigeria’s legislature.

“The award is a huge morale booster because it is coming at a very difficult and challenging period.”

“It’s a period I had to leave my post as Appropriation chairman of the House of Representatives. Suspended through subterranean means by Speaker Yakubu Dogara and received several threats to my life.”

Jibrin was suspended on 28th September. The suspension is without salaries or allowances. Also, he will also not be able to step his foot into the National Assembly complex.

Yet, the lawmaker reiterated his determination to fight corruption in the Nigerian legislature.

“Despite the difficulties I am going through, I will never be cowed to silence. I assure you I will never retreat from this worthy line of action. I shall remain committed to the fight against corruption in the House of Representatives and Nigeria as a whole.”
