Plot To Suspend Ndume Deepens

By Ikenga Chronicles March 28, 2017

The plot by the Bukola Saraki-led Senate to suspend former Senate Leader Ali Ndume has gotten to an advanced stage.

It was learnt that the clandestine move to suspend the Borno State born senator was allegedly based on his motion that led to investigation against Saraki and Senator Dino Melaye.

Recall that a few days ago Ndume raised a point of order  notifying the Senate of media reports alleging that the Senate was on vengeance mission against the Customs Comptroller-General, Hameed Ali over a seized SUV car allegedly belonging to Saraki.

He also said that there were reports that Senator Melaye possesses a fake Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria academic certificate.

In reaction to the alleged plot, a senator said: “We are not happy with him at all. He is on self-destruction and it is the wish of many of us that he should be suspended.”

Another Senator said with the revelations at the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Ndume is on the verge of being suspended.

“All the allegations he raised turned out to be false. There is no need for collation of signatures. It is just a voice vote that is required. His would be worse than that of Abdulmumini Jibrin [suspended at the House last year],” he said.

Ndume, when contacted said he was aware of the plot to suspend him but that he is not perturbed saying “I’m aware of it but I’m not worried. Even when they were plotting to remove me as Senate Leader, I knew it but I wasn’t worried.”

When he appeared before the committee, Vice chancellor of the ABU, Professor Ibrahim Garba confirmed that Melaye graduated from ABU in year 2000.

“ From the records of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria , Senator Dino Melaye who was at that time named Daniel Jonah Melaye graduated with a third class degree of the Bachelors of Arts  in Geography in the year 2000. And by this he is a graduate of the university,” he said.
