Atiku – The Voice Of Senator Ningi Cannot Be Suspended From The Hearts Of The People

The 2023 presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, described the Senator representing Bauchi North Senatorial District, Abdul Ninigi, as the bearer of true conscience.

The former vice president said in a post via his official X handle on Friday that Ningi’s voice represents the voice of truth and cannot be suspended from the people’s hearts.

The PDP chieftain asserted that Ningi and every politician who has a true conscience are welcome to his home.

He posted: “The voice of truth which Senator Ningi represents cannot be suspended from the hearts of the people. Every bearer of true conscience is welcome in my house.”

He was also replaced by Senator Abdulaziz Yar’Adua representing Katsina Central as the Chairman of the Northern Senators’ Forum.

Last week Tuesday, the Senate Minority Leader, Abba Moro (PDP, Benue South) pleaded with the senators in a motion during plenary to recall Ningi, who had already spent 75 days on suspension. The prayer was subsequently granted.

On Tuesday, Ningi arrived at the National Assembly Complex alongside Suleiman Kawu (NNPP, Kano South), and Aminu Waziri Tambuwal (PDP, Sokoto South), among others.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, Ningi told his colleagues that it was time to move on.

“It’s time to move on,” he said, just as the Senate President welcomed him on behalf of other senators, saying, “Bygones should be bygones.”

Citing Order 42 of the Senate Standing Rules, Ningi thanked his colleagues for the gesture, stating that he was away in Turkey when he learnt of his recall from suspension.

He said, “Mr President, distinguished colleagues, I rise with profound humility to commend the Senate, its President, Senator Godswill Akpabio, the Senate leadership and the minority caucus for recalling me from suspension.

“I was in Turkey when the news got to me last week and I’m very much appreciative of the gesture. I’m happy to be back at home because the National Assembly is like home to me, having served as House Leader and Deputy Senate Leader in the past and now, as one of the distinguished serving senators.

“I also thank my state governor, Bala Mohammed, the people of Bauchi State and other Nigerians who reached out to me in one way or another during the period that has now been put behind.”

On behalf of the Senate, Senate President Godswill Akpabio described Ningi as a resourceful person who is needed in the 10th Senate and asked him to “let bygones be bygones.”
