Following the expiration of his suspension, the Senate has recalled its former leader Mohammed Ali Ndume.
Also, some Senators have disagreed with the chamber’s counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) for proceeding on appeal against the High Court judgment that declared Ndume’s suspension illegal without the resolution of members.
Ozekhome has filed a notice of appeal against Friday’s judgment of Justice Babatunde Quadri of the Federal High Court, Abuja which declared Ndume’s suspension as illegal, null and void. According to a letter by Clerk to the Senate Nelson Ayewoh, Ndume is expected to resume in plenary tomorrow.
But barely 72 hours after the reinstatement of Ndume by the Federal High Court, Abuja, Chief Mike Ozekhome(SAN) , who is the counsel to the Senate filed a notice of appeal at the Court of Appeal(Abuja Division).
The appellants are Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges Sen. Samuel Anyanwu.
