“He is under the influence of evil spirits who have taken over him,” Lawmaker says

A member of the House of Representatives, Timothy Golu has said that former Appropriations Committee Chairman, Abdulmumin Jibrin needs serious prayers because he’s under the influence of evil spirits.

Jibrin has been at the centre of controversy since July when he accused Speaker, Yakubu Dogara and other senior members of the House of budget padding.
“He
is under the influence of evil spirits who have taken over him. Jibrin
needs serious prayers. He keeps using one lie to override the other. Let
him swallow his pride and bury his head in shame,”
Golu said according to Daily Trust.

“Two
weeks ago, he said we get N10m monthly. Today, it is N20m. He will soon
get to N100m. There is nothing he can do to pain Dogara in his
imagination because the entire House of Representatives is stoutly
behind the speaker.
“Jibrin is not fit to
be a leader to people because he lacks decorum, decency, maturity,
discipline and composure. He has exposed his childishness and
instability by the way he conducts himself.
“He
does not understand the implications of his being a nuisance and he is a
Nigerian who is living in the past, where any behaviour goes. He
deserved the suspension placed on him, which followed due process.
“He
does not believe in team work. The work of the legislature is that of
team work, strict peer review and internal checks and balances, but he
lacks the legislative temperament, exposure and composure. Having money
is not a yardstick for good leadership or getting counted among the
wise. We used to see him as a wise person but not anymore,”
he added.

Jibrin was suspended by the House on Wednesday, September 28, and has since hired prominent lawyer, Femi Falana to challenge his suspension in court.
