 In what would be regarded as a move against the presidential ambition of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Bola Tinubu, the Federal Housing Authority, has queried the Director-General of Tinubu Campaign Council, Abdulmumin Jibrin, for dereliction of duty, abandonment of official assignment and active political participation.

Jubrin, who is a former House of Representatives member from Kano State, has been the arrowhead of mobilization effort for the presidential ambition of Tinubu in the north.

He was appointed as an Executive Director of FHA in August 2020  after the court sacked him from the House of Representatives.

In a letter dated February 15 and addressed to Jibrin, Zubairu Salihu, Chairman of a Disciplinary Committee of FHA,  summoned Jubrin to appear before the committee after alleged failure to respond to a query earlier issued to him.

Jibrin, who is the executive director (business development) of FHA is expected to appear before the panel on Friday at FHA’s office in Abuja.

The text of the query reads: “Please recall the query issued to you by the Managing Director/CEO over allegations of serious misconduct in the course of your official duties, and your deliberate refusal to respond to the query as required by the Rules of Public Service as applicable to public officers.

“In furtherance of the above the governing board at its 3rd Regular meeting held on Tuesday 2nd February 2022 had set up an investigative/Disciplinary Panel to investigate all the alleged serious misconducts levelled against you.
