Suspended House of Representatives member, Abdulmumin Jibrin, refuted viral reports that claimed he has been expelled from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Rumours of Jibrin’s alleged expulsion went viral yesterday, June 15, 2017 but in a swift reaction, the lawmaker has come out to clear the air, stating that the rumours were masterminded by detractors who are threatened by the anti-corruption crusade.
In a series of Tweets on Thursday evening, Jibrin vehemently stated that he still has a cordial relationship with the party despite the initial fracas that led to his suspension.
He wrote: “My attention has been drawn to a false claim attributed to some mischievous impersonators that I’ve been expelled from my party, the APC
“This report, I’ve gathered, came from a known fraudster who is neither chair of my party at the LG level nor a part of the state party EXCO.
“The party at the federal, state and LG level is not even aware of this false news and impersonation making the rounds in the media.
“This is yet another round of character assassinations from career political antagonizers who are threatened by our anti corruption crusade.
“Recall that I honored the invitation of the EFCC in a bid to shed light on the cases of corruption by some principal officers of the house despite dissuasion by these saboteurs of my party’s change agenda and stand against corruption.They wished I did not honour the EFCC invite.
“The initiators of this false claim of my expulsion by my party are hired hacks engaged by some corrupt politicians in Abuja to distract me.
“I wish to remind the public, and especially the media, that this report is false and did not originate from my party, the APC.
“I have a cordial relationship with my party the APC and we have been working hand in hand to actualize our agenda for a better Nigeria.”
