    Following Court Order, The Senate Has Recalled Its Suspended Member, Ali Ndume

    Following successful challenge of his unwarranted suspension in the court of law, the Nigeria Senate has recalled its former leader, Mohammed Ali Ndume. He is expected to resume in plenary tomorrow.


    Some Senators have disagreed with the chamber’s counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) 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 Friday’s judgment of Justice Babatunde Quadri of the Federal High Court, Abuja which declared Ndume’s suspension as illegal, null and void. The appellants are Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges, Samuel Anyanwu.

    A ranking Senator who begged anonymity said;  

    “So far, we have not agreed at the Executive Session to go to the Court of Appeal on this matter. We are all war wearied, we want peace now, we are tired of any row among us. “Even the High Court refused to award cost in the spirit of engendering peace and harmony in the Senate. We will prefer to broker peace between the Senate President and Ndume.”

    Another Senator from the South-East said:

    “I think our counsel was only acting on the basis of law but we will rather proffer political solution to the judgment of the High Court. It is not every time you go to court.”
