Tinubu meets Akpabio after Ningi’s suspension from senate

President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting Senate President
Godswill Akpabio, the deputy president of the senate, Jibrin Barau and some
other lawmakers at the State House in Abuja.

 

The meeting is coming hours after Abdul Ningi, senator
representing Bauchi Central, was suspended from the senate.

 

The red legislative chamber suspended the Bauchi senator
after he alleged that the 2024 budget was padded by N3 trillion.

 

Recall that during the weekend, Ningi stirred a controversy
when he made the allegation and said a “huge damage” has been done to the north
and the entire country through the budget.

 

Recall that the national assembly had passed a budget of
28.7 trillion for the 2024 fiscal year.

 

Tinubu had proposed N27.5 trillion, but the lawmakers jacked
it up by N1.2 trillion.

 

Ningi on Monday said he was not afraid of suspension from
the senate.

 

“If it is a cross that I have to carry, I will carry it. I’m
not afraid of anything. I believe in one God and I believe that power is
transient,” he said.

 

“I am not scared of any issue like suspension – I have been
out of the senate for eight years and people had to force me back.”

 

At Tuesday’s proceedings, Ningi, who came with documents,
said he had evidence to back his claims.
