Senator Ningi resigns as chairman Northern Senators Forum after Receiving Three Months Suspension

Senator Abdul Ningi, an unhappy federal legislator from Bauchi State, has announced his resignation as head of the Northern Senators Forum, following his suspension from the Red Chamber.

Ningi was previously suspended by the Senate after claiming that the 2024 budget was inflated with N3.7 trillion in additional monies.

Ningi claimed that the National Assembly increased the first proposed budget by N3.7 trillion, underlining that the additional monies could not be attributed to any of the budget’s declared projects.

Reacting to the allegation, the Senate moved a resolution to suspend the lawmaker for three months.

According to the Senate, there is no evidence proving that the 2024 budget was padded as alleged by Ningi.

Meanwhile, Ningi tendered his resignation letter as the chairman of Northern Senators Forum following his suspension.

  • “I will like to resign my position as the chairman of the Northern Senators Forum. This is of course necessitated by unfolding events in the National Assembly, the North and the Nation at large.
  • “I will like to specially thank members of the forum for the opportunity given to me for the last eight months to spearhead this very important forum.
  • “I believe this forum is very important to the progress and development of Northern Nigeria,” the letter reads.
