I won’t apologise to the Senate — Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume

A former Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume, has said calls for him to apologise to the Senate were misplaced because he did nothing wrong to necessitate an apology.

Ndume said this while fielding questions from reporters after he hosted the leaders and representatives of over 20,000 Internally Displaced Persons from Borno-South currently residing in 12 camps spread across the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Saturday.

The legislator is currently serving 180-day suspension slammed on him by the Senate for allegedly impugning on the characters of senators Bukola Saraki (President of the Senate) and Dino Melaye, as well as allegedly exposing the upper legislative chamber to public opprobrium.

He explained that while he had no problem tendering an apology whenever he offended people, there was no justification for him to offer an apology when he had not committed an offence.

According to him, what he did in the Senate was to draw the attention of his colleagues to the issues being raised about the two senators in the media.

This, he said, led to the decision by the entire Senate to investigate and put the matter to rest.
