July 22, 2016, 3:18 pm

House of Representatives Committee on Downstream Sector vice chairman, Danlami Muhammad Kurfi, on Friday, chided the ousted chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, for calling on the Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, to resign.

Kurfi said Jibrin had betrayed Nigerians adding that if the House was not on recess, "some of us" would have moved for his suspension.

Kurfi, who represents Dutsinma/Kurfi Federal Constituency in Katsina state, however said the former appropriation committee chairman should not be taken serious because his utterances were mere ranting of someone who is paying for his actions.

“Why did it take him this long to tell Mr President that the Speaker dines with his enemies” Kurfi queried and insisted that the appropriation committee should thank his stars that his sack came when members were on recess.

“if this had happened while we were in session, some of us would have moved for his suspension” he noted.

Kurfi accused the former appropriation committee chairman arrogance noting "he has no regards for other members of the House and even members of his committee".

He insisted that the removal of Jibrin was one of the best decisions taken by the Speaker noting that the former appropriation committee chairman betrayed not just the trust of the lower chambers but that of every Nigerian.
