Factual Reportage

Senate President Godswill Akpabio has clarified that he bears no responsibility for the suspension of Senator Abdul Ningi (PDP – Bauchi Central).

Akpabio also confirmed that he has not received any correspondence from Senator Ningi requesting his immediate reinstatement.

Senator Ningi was suspended following his interview with BBC Hausa, during which he alleged that the budget for the 2024 fiscal year was padded to the tune of N3.7 trillion.

Following a heated debate among Senators during plenary, Ningi was suspended for three months and instructed to tender a letter of apology to the Senate.

However, in a letter penned by his legal representative, Femi Falana (SAN), on Wednesday, Ningi accused Akpabio of assuming multiple roles, including accuser, prosecutor, and judge, in his own case, contravening provisions of the 1999 Constitution.
