What an irony - and a danger to democracy - this suspension of Senator Ndume.
In 2010: Court Nullifies Suspension Of Dino Melaye, Others
["The 11 members (INCLUDING Dino Melaye] who called themselves 'The Progressives" had alleged that Speaker Dimeji Bankole misappropriated N9 billion between 2008 and 2009. When the matter came up on the floor of the House, the issue polarised members leading to a free-for-all and the suspension of the affected lawmakers."]
In 2017: Senate Suspends Ndume For Bringing Saraki, Melaye Into Disrepute
["(A Senate Committee) cleared Saraki of the allegation of taking vengeance on the Comptroller-General of the NCS, Hameed Ali, for seizing a vehicle purportedly belonging to him. It also exonerated Dino Melaye of the allegation of forging his degree certificate."]
Our Senators really need to live up to our expectations....otherwise, this our democracy is truly endangered.
