Senate suspends Senator Ningi for 3 months

Boom RadioNG | March 12, 2024

The Senate has today suspended Senator Abdul Ningi over his allegations of N3.7trn padding of the 2024 appropriation bill.

The senator representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, was suspended for three months after a long heated plenary in the red chamber.

A member of the senate Appropriation Committee in the Senate, Jimoh Ibrahim, first moved the motion for a 12-month suspension for the senator over the allegations of criminal misinformation and breach of peace in the National Assembly and the country by extension.

However, Senators Asuquo Ekpenyong and Abdulfatai Buhari prayed for the reduction of the suspension to six and three months respectively.

Also, the senate president who described Ningi’s offences as “grievous”, conducted a voice vote during which most of the lawmakers voted in support of Ningi’s suspension for three months.

A few days back in an interview, Seantor Ningi had alleged that the Federal Government was operating two versions of the 2024 budget and that the N28.7 trillion Budget passed and signed into law by President Bola Tinubu was skewed against the North.

He then later denied saying that the country is operating two budgets but insisted that only N25trn of the budget was tied to projects while N3.7trn had no project tied to it.
