Senate recalls suspended Senator Ali Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume

Members of the Senate have resolved to allow Senator Ali Ndume (Borno-South) resume on Wednesday from his six-month suspension by the lawmakers.

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary on Tuesday, made the announcement after an executive (closed-door) meeting.

He said going by the legislative houses (powers and privileges) act, the trial court lacked requisite jurisdiction to hear the suit of Ndume.

Tuesday's resolution was however seen as a welcome development by numerous lawmakers who saw it as part of the ongoing peace initiative in the chamber.

-His recall comes four days after a federal high court declared his suspension illegal.

In a twist of events however, a letter dated November 6, written by the Clerk of the Senate, Nelson Ayewoh, and addressed to Ali Ndume, notified him to resume in plenary on Wednesday (tomorrow).

The court also ordered that Mr. Ndume be paid all his outstanding salaries and allowances.
