Sen Ningi: Your Enduring Principles Will Not Be Forgotten

From the onset, Sen.Abdul Ahmed Ningi tends to put his foot in the shoes of our fallen heroes of yore, the likes of the first and only Nigeria’s Prime Minister , Sir. Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and the first and only Premier of northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, of blessed memory, who left no stone unturned in upholding the spirit of transparency and national interest.
Carefully sampling the opinion of most citizens on the recent suspension of my senator, and perhaps the role of the northern senators has raised dust in Nigeria’s political arena.
The negative tendencies of the decision taken by the apex law making body to distance Senator Ningi from his legislative duties for three months following his widely publicised outcry on the alleged budget padding N3.7 trillion is a shocking reminder to all on the need to redefine the way we practice our kind of democracy.
His suspension has created a vacuum difficult to be replaced.
His constituents have been robbed of representation. The entire 19 northern states and the country by extension have been short-changed.
Even if senators from other parts of the country found nothing strange in the punishment motion moved by Senator Ibrahim Jimoh who is of the same caucus with the Senate President Godswill Akpabio, senators from North should have interrogated the propriety of the motion.
But then, on the flip side, making a simple analysis on his resignation as the Chairman of the Northern Senators Forum, it is evident that his suspension from the National Assembly gathers more political relevance to the opposition figure and patriot.
