Can you smell the alleged horse trading ahead of 2019? 

The Borno APC senator was placed on suspension following the recommendation of the ethics and privileges committee of the Senate headed by Chris Anyanwu.

The committee was asked to investigate allegations against Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate, and Dino Melaye.

Although Ndume was not the originator of the allegations, on March 20, he raised a point of order asking the Senate to investigative issues involving the two lawmakers, as reported in the media.

Ndume requested that the Senate provides an avenue for those involved to clear their names and redeem the image of the institution.

However, at the conclusion of its assignment, the Anyanwu committee accused Ndume of raising a false alarm capable of tarnishing the image of his colleagues.

He was subsequently placed on six months suspension.

However in September, when the six months was deemed to have passed, the Senate issued a statement extending the suspension to November, on the excuse of discounting holidays and weekends.

Could this be a case of Babachir Lawal (OUT); Ali Ndume (IN)?
