The Thread: “I have brought my case to you, sir” | Is Mr President listening to Hon. Jibrin’s cry?

The Nigerian lawmaker who made budget padding famous, Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin, is appealing to President Buhari to help his matter.

Honourable Jibrin resorted to writing an open letter (and reposting same) via Twitter after efforts to reach the President in other ways failed, but the silence on Twitter is so loud, you have to wonder if the Presidential Media Team has taken up other occupations.

What is Mr Jibrin’s grieviance? He’d like Mr President to call the Speaker of the House of Representatives to order for spreading lies about both of them in Dogara’s new book. He also wants Nigerians to help him get his seat in the house back. Mr Jibrin had been put on suspension for 180 legislative days “which amounts to 540 days considering the House sits three days a week, between Tuesday and Friday”. This brings it to well over a year. Mr Jibrin’s one year suspension anniversary took place in September 2017, but he’s still got a ways to go, hence the outcry.

However, it doesn’t appear the President and his people reckon they’ve got any dog in this fight so they are keeping their lips sealed. Nigerian Twitter is also not invested in Jibrin’s political destiny so no hashtag is trending.

Where will Jibrin go from here – Atiku?
