Falana demands reinstatement of Senator Ningi

Senstor Abdul Ahmed Ningi, through his lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, has requested reinstatement to the senate.

Ningi, representing the Bauchi Central Senatorial District, was suspended on March 12, 2024, by the senate for alleging that the 2024 budget was padded with N3 trillion.

Ningi, in a letter through Falana, accused the Senate President Godswill Akpabio of violating his client’s fundamental right to fair hearing.

He advised Akpabio to his Ningi’s suspension or be reported to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee, LPDC.

The human rights lawyer disclosed that Akpabio caused him to be put on trial before the Senate on March 14.

In a letter dated March 25, 2024, addressed to Akapbio, the lawmaker said that the Senate President pronounced him guilty and suspended him.

“At the end of the trial, you pronounced our client guilty and declared,” the letter reads in part.

“That the Senate do suspend Senator Abdul Nigin (Bauchi North) for three months and he should forfeit all his entitlements and be disallowed from the precincts of the National Assembly Complex during the period of the suspension.

“He should also apologise to the Senate in writing, thereafter the senate can consider his remorse and recall him”, part of his letter read.
