The House of Representatives has lifted a suspension it placed on Abdulmumin Jibrin, a member of the House from Kano.
This followed a letter signed by Mr. Jibrin, allegedly apologising to the House.
Although the letter wasna��t fully read before the parliament, the speaker paraphrased it by saying he has apologised and met all the conditions given to him.
a�?He has fulfilled all the conditions by writing this letter and so he is free to resume his legislative duties whenever he wants, if he so wishesa�?
Mr. Jibrin was suspended in 2017 for a period of 180 legislative days for a�?unfoldinga�� budget padding scandal in the legislature.
His suspension however lasted for more than the stipulated 180 legislative days which is equivalent to one year.
