- A member of House of Representatives, Abdulmumini Jibril has apologised to President Buhari
- Jibril had demanded that Buhari should resign based on health grounds
- He, however said his call was misconstrued by Nigerians
Suspended House of Representatives member, Abdulmumin Jibrin has apologised to President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerians and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
NAIJ.com reported that Mr Jubril had last week asked President Buhari to step down based on health grounds.
Premium Times reports that Mr Jibrin also organised a special prayer at a Jumaat mosque for the success of the Buhari administration and for the president’s recovery.
Mr Jibrin, who received hundreds of his supporters at his Kofa hometown, told journalists his call for the president to resign was “misunderstood”.
“Nonetheless, I’m apologising to anybody I offended,” he added.
“First, the president himself who is a father and who I truly believe in, the ruling APC and indeed Nigerians.”
Mr Jibrin said President Buhari remained his hope for a better Nigeria, and said any other claim did not reflect his position.
On Friday April 7, Mr Jibrin, who is on suspension, having being sanctioned by the House of Representatives for accusing Speaker Yakubu Dogara of budget fraud, led Quranic recitations shortly after Jumaat prayers at the Kofa central mosque.
The chief Imam of the mosque, Aminu Ibrahim, also offered a special prayer for the president.
After the offering of the prayers and the recitations, a cow was killed as a sacrifice for the success of the Buhari government and for his full recovery.
The APC chairman in Kofa, Bala Shuaibu, alongside his 25 executive members, also denied moves to recall Mr Jibrin.
He said a claim of Mr. Jibrin’s recall was false.
