Former Nigerian Senate Majority Leader, Ali Ndume who was placed him on a six-month suspension after he called on the Nigerian Senate to investigate allegations of corruption levelled against Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Dino Melaye in the media sometime in March this year, has been recalled back to the red chamber.
Ali Ndume (Borno South) who was suspended following the recommendation of the Ethics and Privileges Committee of the Senate chaired by Chris Anyanwu, was recalled back this morning in a plenary session presided over by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
Ndume’s suspension elapsed in September, however, the Senate issued a statement extending the suspension to November, on the excuse of discounting holidays and weekends.
Senator Ndume, however, filed a lawsuit against the Senate before a Federal High Court in Abuja. Last week, the court nullified the extension of his suspension and asked that he be recalled. He was asked to resume work in the chambers tomorrow, November 15th.
