In the tweet, Jibrin revealed his unparalleled support for President Muhammadu Buhari for a return to power in 2019 but said is only on one condition.

Just recently, Jibrin, who is presently embroiled in a war with the leadership of the lower house over the budget padding scandal, described the recent purchase of exotic cars for lawmakers as “wasteful” and insensitive.

Jibrin said it was wrong to buy the cars at a time country was in recession.

“In line with my commitment to continue to expose individual and systemic corruption in the House and Nigeria as a whole, I wish to state the following facts.

“That it is an outright lie that the cars are needed for oversight as over 80 per cent of oversight activities of the House of Representatives are carried out in Abuja and in almost all instances it is the MDA’s that arrange buses to convey members from the premises of the House to the respective MDA," he said.
