Ndume suspended for 6 months
The Nigerian Senate has suspended Senator Ali Ndume for six months.
The suspend lawmaker was accused of bringing unfounded and unverified allegations against the Senate President and Senator Dino Melaye.
The decision to Suspend the former majority leader was taken by the Senate after considering the report of its Committee on Ethics and Privileges which was directed to investigate the matter.
The report submitted by the committee recommended that Senator Ndume be suspended for 181 sitting days, for bringing dishonor on the senate but a Federal lawmaker appealed that he should be suspended for six months instead.
It would be recalled that Senator Ali Ndume had recently called for the investigation of Senate President Bukola Saraki over allegations of importing a bullet proof range rover with fake duties document as well as senator Dino Melaye over allegations of university certificate scandal.
