Why I Was Removed As Senate Leader – Ndume by TheHerald: 8:12am On Jan 11
Senator Ali Ndume has revealed the reason why he was removed as Senate leader.

The Borno State senator said his removal was based on his insistence that the Senate did not follow due process in rejecting the nomination of acting EFCC chair, Ibrahim Magu according to Premium Times.

“What I said was that for us (Senate) to claim to have a rejected a nominee sent to us by the president, we have to follow the right procedure, and observe our rules,” the senator said.

“The nominee should have been called into the chamber and presented before senators who will then openly vote on whether to accept or reject his or her nomination.

“In the case of Magu, that was not done. We only had a closed-door session and when we emerged the Senate spokesperson claimed that he had been rejected. I had to set the record straight by saying we never rejected the nominee. This is because you don’t accept or reject a nominee at a closed session.

“Our votes and proceedings are there as evidence of my claims.”

Ndume said he heard rumours of the plot to remove him but paid no attention to it.

“I was surprised that such a simple and harmless clarification could rattle and anger some of my colleagues,” he said.

“The other day, somebody mentioned to me that the Senate President had commissioned Dino Melaye to collect signatures to remove me. I didn’t pay much attention to the information because I actually thought it was a joke or a rumour.

“I didn’t feel that disagreeing with colleagues, and sharing my understanding of what transpired at our closed session was an offence, grievous enough to cause my removal.”

So mr senator, are you saying even your fellow apc senators are against magu? Because I don't understand why they kick you out because you were advocating for magu...

And the nairaland zombies are ranting and making it look as if magu's rejection was championed by only Saraki and the PDP lawmakers.

This was the man who contested against Ike Ekweremadu and still believes that the Igbo's don't deserve anything in the present Nigeria.. Chukwuokike Abiama has started fighting for his people.

Kai, eya,

You sounded so innocent.

You're right about the due process though. However, Magu had stepped on toes in his selective manhunt. His case was that of "dead before consideration".

Next time, kindly do not question the obvious.

When are all these useless 3rd world rogues called Senators and members of house of Representatives going to remove themselves?

Bunch of unrepentant wicked charlatans who are all about the money and zilch about nation building.

They should start killing themselves with immediate alacrity!!!
