I did nothing wrong in the Senate and will always continue to speak the truth – Senator Ndume
The Senator representing Borno South, Ali Ndume, has insisted that he did nothing wrong in the Senate and that he will always continue to speak the truth.
Ndume has been suspended for six months after he demanded that allegations against Senate President Bukola Saraki and Dino Melaye, be investigated.
Saraki was accused of owning a vehicle that was imported with fake documents, while Melaye was said to have forged his university certificate.
Both men were eventually cleared by the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges.
Speaking to his constituents on Sunday, Ndume stated that he preferred to be alone in the upper chamber, than betray Nigerians.
He remained adamant that he did not regret supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption and that the suspension would not stop him from practising the truth in the interest of the nation.
“As far I am concerned, I wronged no one in the senate and I am not regretting my loyalty and support for President Buhari’s fight against corruption as well as all forms of financial crimes,” he said.
