Senators Gang up Against Ndume for Causing Dino Melaye Certificate Scandal
Ndume last week raised a point of order informing his colleagues of media reports that the Senate was hitting back against Customs boss Hamid Ali over the seizure of an SUV allegedly belonging to Saraki.
He also mentioned reports that Melaye possesses a fake Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria academic certificate.
“We are not happy with him at all," a senator reportedly said. "He is on self-destruction and it is the wish of many of us that he should be suspended."
“All the allegations he raised turned out to be false. There is no need for collation of signatures. It is just a voice vote that is required. His would be worse than that of Abdulmumini Jibrin (suspended at the House last year),” another senator chipped in.
When contacted, Ndume was upbeat.
“I’m aware of it but I’m not worried," he said. "Even when they were plotting to remove me as Senate Leader, I knew it but I wasn’t worried.”
