SENATE: Ndume Walks Out On Akpabio Barely 2 Months After Threatening ‘Drastic Action’

At Wednesday’s session of the Senate, Chief Whip, Ali Ndume, left the plenary after the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, ruled him out of order.

The disagreement arose when Ndume cited Senate Rule 54, asserting his role as responsible for guiding the Senate on procedural matters during plenary.

He attempted to draw the Senate President’s attention to alleged errors in proceedings.

Specifically, Ndume pointed out an error related to a motion by Senator Summaila Kawu, which omitted the motion’s title.
