Suspended former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume to resume sitting today

The Senate has resolved that suspended former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume should resume sitting today, Wednesday November 15.

Although the senator last week, won a suit annulling his suspension, but the senate recalled him after he had served his suspension of 90 legislative days.

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

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary, said Ndume had served out his suspension of 90 legislative days, without prejudice to the current court process.

The Senate had, on March 29, suspended the former Senate Leader following the recommendation of the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, which investigated an allegation made against him.
