Senate Suspends Ningi for Three Months Over Budget Padding Claims

The Senate under the leadership of Senate President Godswill Akpabio has suspended Senator Abdul Ningi from Bauchi Central Senatorial District for three months over allegations of padding of the 2024 Budget.

After a long stormy session in the red chamber, a member of the Appropriation Committee in the Senate, Jimoh Ibrahim, moved the motion for Ningi’s suspension for 12 months over allegations of criminal misinformation and breach of peace in the National Assembly and the country by extension.

However, other lawmakers like Senator Asuquo Ekpenyong moved for the amendment of the motion by Ibrahim. Ekpenyong, who is from Cross River South Senatorial District, prayed for the reduction of the suspension.
