Hon Jibrin celebrates 100 days of budget padding, splashes N100m | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Suspended lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Wednesday celebrated 100 days of budget padding scandal by distributing cash and material gifts to his constituents in Kano state.

He reportedly splashed N100 million cash startup package to his constituents as part of activities to commemorate 100 days of his anti-corruption crusade against budget fraud.

The lawmaker also distributed motorcycles, generators, sewing machines, grinding machines and other empowerment perks worth N100million and scholarship grant for 1,000 students.

Jibrin who was suspended by the House of representatives for one year doled out sewing machines, grinding machines and scholarships to his constituents.

A statement from his media office said the distribution of items to no fewer than 5,000 constituents was part of an empowerment scheme planned by Jibrin.

Some of the constituents who spoke on the occasion called on President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Ganduje, Emir of Kano, Senator Kwankwaso and well-meaning Nigerians to call on the House to rescind its suspension as the seat belongs to Kiru/Bebeji constituency, not Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin.

Presenting the empowerment packages to 5,000 beneficiaries, Jibrin said the gesture was aimed at empowering his constituents towards cushioning the effect of hardship in the country.
