Suspended member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin has apologised for stating that President Muhammadu Buhari should resign.
Jibrin in a series of tweets last week had called for Buhari’s resignation due to his ill health.
He had also added that Buhari should be given the opportunity to choose a Vice President and his wife, Aisha should be given a top position in government.
While speaking in Kano on Friday, Jibrin said he was misconstrued.
“What I said was misconstrued and blown out of proportion,” he said.
“I, Jibrin Abdulmumini Kofa, a member representing Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency, is apologising to President Muhammadu Buhari, the party leadership, Kano state governor, Kano people and all Buhari supporters across the country.
“May Allah give him (Buhari) the strength to rule successfully. And May He give him good health and the country in general.”
He added that he was not apologising to the leadership of the House of Representatives who he accused of padding the budget.
“I’m not apologising to people like Alhassan Ado Doguwa in the national assembly,” he said.
“No one in the hallowed chamber is fighting against corruption like I am.
“I was in the United Kingdom when people were protesting, but what I did was to rush down home in the next available flight. I want show them that I am still with my people. And they support me all the time.”
