Ndume can resume on Wednesday - Senate

Senator Ali Ndume

Justice Quadri had in a judgment he delivered on the 10 of November 2017 set aside Ndume's suspension on the grounds that the action of the upper legislature suspending the Senator representing Borno South Senatorial District was illegal, unlawful and unconstitutional.

The decision was announced by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, after a close door session.

The Senate has finally recalled its former Majority Leader, Ali Ndume, who was suspended in controversial circumstances eight months ago, following his successful court case challenging his suspension.

Ndume was in March suspended for six months for "deliberately" bringing up an issue the upper legislative chamber describes as portraying it in a bad light.

Mr. Ndume was suspended for calling for the investigation of allegations of fraud and certificate falsification against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and another senator, Dino Melaye, respectively.

The Senate in reaction said they will appeal the Federal High Court judgement on Monday.

Ekweremadu said that the resolution was without prejudice to the legal tussle surrounding Ndume's suspension. Dino Melaye, his colleagues and the institution of the Senate to unbearable disrepute.

Trump to nominate 'star' to lead HHS
Former George W Bush appointee and industry insider Alex Azar is the most recent swamp creature to emerge from the MAGA train. The HHS is responsible for advising the President on matters of health, welfare, and income security programmes.

In spite of this however, the Senate says it is still contesting the court judgment that ordered it to pay Ndume his salaries and entitlements for the period he was under suspension.

Meanwhile, Ozokhome stated that "It is important to state clearly, that the Senate respectfully disagrees with the said judgment".

"The court has so declared that it was not right and it was illegal".

Although the senator last week, won a suit annulling his suspension, but the senate recalled the senator after he had served his suspension of 90 legislative days.

"That by the provisions of sections 3 and 30 of the Legislative Houses (Powers and Privileges) Act, " he said the trial court lacked requisite jurisdiction to hear the suit of the Plaintiff.

"The Senate's argument was supported by various and current decisions of the apex court".

"An application for a stay of execution of the orders of the court will also be filed same time".
