Ndume
Senate

The Senate on Tuesday has decided that the suspended Senator Ali Ndume (APC-Borno South) will be allowed to resume plenary on Wednesday 15th November, 2017.

The decision was reached after a closed-door meeting by the Senate on Tuesday before its plenary session.

Senate had said it would appeal the Federal High Court judgement which ruled in the Borno Senator’s favour on Friday, 10th November, 2017.

Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over Tuesday’s plenary session, said the lawmaker had served out his suspension, without prejudice to the current court process.

He said: ”Distinguished colleagues, after a closed-door session, the Senate resolved that Senator Ali Ndume should resume session tomorrow, Wednesday 15th November, 2017.”

Former Senate leader, Ndume was early in the year suspended for six months.

While serving the suspension, he sued the Senate and won.
