Magu: Fresh Crisis Brews In Senate As Saraki's Men Plots Ndume's Sack


The name of the erstwhile leader of the Senate, Ali Ndume, has reportedly been penciled down for suspension from the National Assembly by senators loyal to Senate President, Bukola Saraki, over what they have described as ‘unparliamentary’ utterances made by the Borno-born lawmaker.

Ndume incurred the wrath of Saraki and his loyalists, when he protested the rejection of the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu, by the Senate.

Ndume, after the second rejection of Magu, granted several press interviews where he openly criticized Saraki and the entire Senate for rejecting Magu.

A source familiar with the planned suspension of Ndume, told the media that the move may happen any time barring any last minute change of mind.
