Senate Sets To Recall Ningi From Suspension – Akpabio



Senate President Godswill Akpabio, says that the Senate is set to recall Senator Abdul Ningi from his three months suspension.
Akpabio spoke while answering questions from reporters on arrival from the Inter-Parliamentary Union, IPU, meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.
According to him, the Senate would soon review the three months suspension it slammed on Ningi for claiming that the 2024 budget was allegedly padded with  N3.7trillion.
This development is coming agsinst the backdrop Ningi's seven- day ultimatum to Akpabio  to restore him or face legal action, as contained in a letter written by his counsel, Femi Falana SAN.
However, Akpabio told reporters that although he had not seen the said letter, it was already receiving due attention, adding that the matter would be resolved like a family affair and hopefully Ningi would return to take his seat earlier than expected.
Akpabio' s words, “It is a parliamentary decision. I have not seen the letter yet. But Senator Ningi is one of us. I mean what is suspension?
“I believe that in a few days he will join us. So, there is no problem. It would be resolved amicably. The Senate is a family.”
