Senate recalls Senator Ali Ndume after Eight Months Suspension

Nigerian Senate has recalled its former Majority Leader and senator representing Borno South, Ali Ndume, after been suspended for eight months.

Senator Ali Ndume was suspended after he asked the Senate to investigate allegations of corruption leveled against Senate President Bukola Saraki and his friend Dino Melaye in during an interview in March this year.

Sequel to that, the Senate handed him a six months suspension. The senate again extended the suspension to November after the earlier suspension elapsed in September citing discounting holidays and weekends.

Last week, a federal high court sitting in Abuja nullified the extension of his suspension and asked that he be recalled after Senator Ali Ndume had filed a lawsuit against the Senate.

The deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu who presided over plenary today 14/11/2017, asked that Senator Ali Ndume should resume work in the chambers tomorrow, November 15th.
