- The ex-Kano lawmaker lost his seat to his rival from the PDP after his election was nullified and a rerun was ordered
Abdulmumin Jibrin, a former member of the House of Representatives, has returned the property of the National Assembly in his possession to the clerk.
Jibirin lost his seat to his rival from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after his election was nullified and a rerun was ordered by the court.
Speaking after returning the property, the former Kano lawmaker said his political future in the hands of God, adding that he will still be involved in active politics, The Nation reports.
He recalled his activities in the House of Representatives over the last 10 years, saying he had a fulfiling experience without any blemish or scandal.
Jibrin said though he was not looking for any compensation after losing the rerun, he was not tired of serving the country in any capacity if he was called upon to do so.
After his devastating loss during the rerun, Jibrin said he did not lose the election but was robbed by his political opponents in the state.
He emphasised that his mandate was stolen through the use of brutal force by the opposition.
"Yesterday I released an official statement in respect of the re-run election in my constituency. The full statement is attached to this tweet. Let me conclude with an emphasis that we did not lose that election but our mandate was stolen through the use of brutal force," he said.
Jibrin, however, said that he had congratulated the winner despite his rejection of the election results.
He also said he would not file petition against the victory of his opponent, adding that he would make no comment on the matter.
"However I have congratulated my opponent and will not file petition in court. I will make no further comment on this matter. I urge the media to please respect my decision. This is the end of another beginning. I have moved on," he said.
In another related news, President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed why he has remained silent on the Kano emirates controversy which has been rocking the state for quite a while.
