Ndume to resume plenary at Senate on Wednesday after court judgment

Following the expiration of his suspension, the Senate has recalled its former Leader, Ali Ndume.

Ndume is expected to resume plenary on Wednesday (tomorrow).

Also, some Senators have disagreed with the Senate’s Counsel, Mike Ozekhome for proceeding on appeal against the High Court judgment that declared Ndume’s suspension illegal without the resolution of members.

Ozekhome has filed a notice of appeal against last Friday’s judgment of Justice Babatunde Quadri of the Federal High Court, Abuja which declared Ndume’s suspension illegal, null and void.

The appellants are Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges Samuel Anyanwu.

According to a letter by Clerk to the Senate, Nelson Ayewoh, Ndume is expected to resume plenary tomorrow.

A Senator from North-Central said: “I think we need to test the law to its logical conclusion on the powers of the Senate to exercise disciplinary control on its members. But we have not met to decide whether or not we should go on appeal.”
