Sacked Senate Leader Ndume weeps, expresses shock over removal
By Mayowa Okekale, Abuja on 11/01/2017
Former Senate Leader Ali Ndume.
Senator Ali Ndume, who excused himself to pray during yesterday’s sitting only to learn of his removal as Senate Leader upon his return, wept today as he sought to come to terms with the development.
Speaking during plenary, Ndume said he was shocked that 38 of his colleagues in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) signed the documents passing a vote of no confidence on him.
Ndume blamed some Senators, saying that “three times I offered to resign as Senate Leader, but you all wanted me to stay.”
He added that what happened to him could also recur in no distant future to any other lawmaker. According to him, “If this happened to me today, it could be Ekweremadu tomorrow. This is why we must protect the integrity of the Senate.”
Ndume, however, accepted his fate and thanked other senators.
Countering the Former leader Ndume, Senator Bashir Marafa representing Taraba Central, who spoke on Order 41, insisted that “due process was followed in the removal of Senator Ali Ndume as Senate Leader.”
News Express reports that Ndume was unceremoniously removed for publicly faulting the decision of the Senate not to confirm the appointment of Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) based on a damning security report.
