The House of Representatives on Thursday insisted that the suspended former Chairman of its Appropriations Committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin, must apologise before he would be re-admitted to the House.
The Chairman, Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazaq Namdas, who stated this during a weekly media session in Abuja, explained why Jibrin had not been re-admitted after spending a full legislative year on suspension.
The former appropriations committee chairman was suspended before the House went on the annual recess at the end of the 2016 legislative year.
On Thursday, Namdas said Jibrin had not completed his 180-day suspension. According to him, Jibrin must notify the House formally after the completion of the suspension.
