Senators Gang Up Against Ndume Over Dino Melaye
Members of the Senate have started a plot to suspend former Majority leader, Ali Ndume over his motion to investigate allegations against Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Senator Dino Melaye.
Ndume had raised a point order during plenary last week over allegations that the Senate was on vengeance against the Customs Comptroller-General, Hamid Ali over a seized SUV car allegedly belonging to Saraki.He also raised the certificate scandal involving Dino Melaye.The senators are now plotting to suspend Ndume due to his action.
“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,” a Senator said.
Another Senator said with the revelations at the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Ndume may soon be 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. When contacted, Ndume said he was aware of the plot but was not disturbed.“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.”While speaking before the ethics committee on Monday, Ndume had said, “I raised a point of order. It is not personal, if there is anything that border on the integrity. Here we are that it has been proved beyond reasonable doubt that Melaye is a graduate.”
