THE Suspension of Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume (Borno-APC) has been nullified.
A Federal High Court in Abuja, today, presided over by Justice Babatunde Quadri, nullified his suspension and ordered his reinstatement.
Bukola Saraki, president of the senate was ordered to ensure prompt payment of Ndume’s salaries and allowances while he was suspended.
Ndume had asked for investigation of allegations of importing a bullet proof range rover with fake documents involving Senate President Bukola Saraki and that of perjury involving Senator Dino Melaye.
The Senate reached the decision after the resolution to uphold the recommendation of the committee on ethics and privileges chaired by Samuel Anyanwu.
He was suspended for six months, instead of one year originally recommended by the ethics committee.
Mr. Anyanwu, whose committee convened investigative hearing on the two matters reported that Mr. Ndume failed to conduct proper investigation before making “the allegations”.
