Ali Ndume Suspended

The Nigerian Senate has suspended Ali Ndume, a Senator from Borno state for six months for “deliberately” bringing up an issue the upper legislative chamber describes as portraying it in

a bad light.

The suspension which takes effect from Wednesday, March 29, 2017 follows the recommendation of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges which investigated allegations of certificate scandal against Senator Dino Melaye and importation of an SUV with fake customs papers against Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

However, the committee in its report exonerated the Senate President and Dino Melaye, pointedly concluded that suspension of Ndume was appropriate to serve as deterrent to others.
