Senate President Godswill Akpabio has stated that Senator Abdul Ningi will be recalled from his three-month suspension.

He revealed this when taking questions from the media after returning from the Inter-Parliamentary Union summit in Geneva, Switzerland.

Akpabio stated that the Senate will shortly reconsider the three-month ban imposed on Ningi for allegedly padding the 2024 budget by N3.7 trillion.

Allnews.ng had reported that Ningi demanded readmission to the Senate on Thursday in a letter submitted by his attorney, Femi Falana SAN.

Akpabio stated that even though he had not received the letter, the situation would be handled as a family matter.


He said: “It is a parliamentary decision. I have not seen the letter yet. But Senator Ningi is one of us. I mean, what is suspension?”
