Why I believe Ningi’s suspension was well deserved – Top official reveals

After the suspension of senator Abdul Abdul Ningi, the senate Minority Leader Abba Moro affirmed the Senate’s decision to suspend Senator Abdul Ningi for alleging that the 2024 budget was padded.

Moro emphasized that Ningi’s actions, including granting an interview after the Northern Senators Forum met with Senate President Godswill Akpabio on the matter, were inappropriate.

Speaking on Channels Television, Moro expressed concern over the credibility of the upper chamber due to Ningi’s claims, stating that addressing budget padding has been an ongoing issue in previous Senate sessions.

He said: “I think the Senate did the appropriate thing, I was there. Budget padding may not be mentioned here now in the 10th Senate because previous budgets have been criticised based on budget padding.But this is the first time a participant senator who was honestly engaged in the whole process is coming out to say that what I did was wrong and rubbing it on all of us. I think it is not correct.

“The budget in question was passed by the senators. Senator Ningi is a senator, he was a member of the Appropriation Committee. I am from the North and he purported to speak for the North.

“Why I was angry is that Senator Kawu Samaila, who is the spokesperson of the Northern Senators Forum, came before me and said he was going to address the press on this same matter while the debate was going on.“I said, ‘You don’t do that. You raised issues, we are tackling the issues, and here you are, you want to address the press, go ahead and address the press.’ That was why I raised my hands because, as minority leader, Senator Kawu Samaila is a member of the NNPP.

He is with me and signed for me to be a minority leader.So why would he not accept my advice? As people have commented now, the Senate is already having some level of credibility problems. Why would an individual arrogate to himself the power to know it all, say it all?”
