The suspended member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumuni Jibrin, on Thursday met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed doors. Mr. Jibrin told State House correspondents that he met with Mr. Buhari because he considered him a father.
Mr. Jibrin, who was suspended by the House in 2016, after he accused the House leadership of fraud, declined to say if he met with the president to seek his intervention over his predicament.
“Well, I cannot comment in that regard. The most important is that I saw him and he is in a very high spirit. I greeted him like a son and he spoke to me like a father,” he said.
Mr. Jibrin also said he took advantage of the visit to sympathise with the president on his son’s accident.
