Breaking: Protest Heightened At National Assembly over Ndume’s Suspension

By
Gbedu magazine reveals that the National Assembly in Abuja, has experienced thousands of protesters blocking the entrance thereby demanding the immediate reinstatement of Ali Ndume, Senator representing Borno South in the Senate.
 
Mr. Ndume was suspended last week by the Senate for triggering investigations into allegations of forgery against the senate president, Bukola Saraki, and Kogi senator, Dino Melaye.
 
News reports accused Mr. Saraki of importing a Range Rover SUV without paying appropriate import duty, and attempting to clear the vehicle with falsified papers.
 
Mr. Melaye was accused of falsely claiming to have graduated from Ahmadu Bello University.
 
The Senate dismissed both allegations, and sanctioned Mr. Ndume by suspending him for six months.
 
There have been moves by Borno politicians to get Mr. Ndume reinstated.
 
Protesters arrived the National Assembly gate early Tuesday, with placards lambasting Mr. Saraki and the Senate.
“Saraki is a curse”, one placard read.
