Kashim Shettima the governor of Borno State and some other Northern traditional and political leaders have approached Senate President Bukola Saraki and other lawmakers asking them to upturn the suspension of Ali Ndume.Mr. Shettima led a team to the residence of Mr. Saraki, Thursday night, seeking to end the feud between the estranged allies and ensuring the suspension slammed on Mr. Ndume is lifted. The purpose of the visit is said to be as a form of mediation.
Mr. Ndume was suspended from legislative activities for six months, after the Senate, on Wednesday, upheld the report of its committee on ethics, privileges and public petitions chaired by Samuel Anyanwu, PDP-Imo.
Mr. Ndume had, at plenary last week, raised the bullet proof car scandal involving Mr. Saraki, and the certificate scandal involving another senator, Dino Melaye.
