BREAKING

The Senate on Tuesday has suspended Senator Abdul Ningi, over the remark that the National Assembly padded the 2024 budget with a swooping N3.7 trillion which is not traceable to any project.

The motion which was brought forward by Senator Jimoh Ibrahim was also seconded by other senators during a plenary session in the Red Chamber.

According to Senator Ibrahim, the claim by Ningi was not backed with any threshold of evidence, thus violating the ethic and values of the Red Chamber.

The Senate president, Godswill Akpabio, therefore agreed to the resolution that Senator Ningi be suspended for three months.
