Abdulmumin Jibrin, former chairman of the house of representatives committee on appropriation, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to “give up his presidency” if he cannot resist blackmail.
Jibrin said Buhari is acting as if he has to beg some “political overlords” before he would be allowed to do his job.
He alleged that Buhari was playing into the hands of those who do not mean well for him and his government.
This is Jibrin’s first direct attack on Buhari since he accused principal officials of the house of padding the 2016 budget.
He had earlier lamented over Buhari’s refusal to act against the leadership of the 8th assembly.
The dust he raised over the 2016 budget led to his suspension.
