The Deputy Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase, has said that he sacked one of his legislative aides, Ahmed Tijjani Abubakar, over alleged fraud.

This was disclosed by Wase’s Chief Press Secretary, Umar Puma, in a statement on Tuesday titled, “Wase replaces Legislative Aide.”

According to the statement, Abubakar was sacked last year for fraudulently using his position in the office to defraud ministries, departments and agencies.

He was replaced by Musa Rabo, whose appointment letter was appended and took effect from 8th December 2020.

“The attention of Chief of Staff to the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Dr Aminu Ibrahim Malle, has been drawn to a purported resignation of a former legislative aide to the Deputy Speaker by name Ahmed Tijjani Abubakar,” the statement disclosed.

“For the avoidance of doubt and to keep the records straight, it is imperative to clarify that the person in question was relieved of his appointment since last year after he was discovered to be (allegedly) fraudulently using his position in the office to defraud ministries, departments and agencies.

“The Deputy Speaker, after receiving the complaints, was left with no choice than to relieve him of his appointment, and has since replaced him with Musa Rabo, whose appointment letter was appended and took effect from 8th December, 2020, against Ahmed’s belated letter of resignation dated 27th January 2021….Therefore, the reported voluntary resignation was a misrepresentation of what actually transpired,” it added.
