ederal High Court in Abuja has voided the suspension of Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume (representing Borno South Senatorial District) since March this year. Justice Babatunde Quadri, in a judgment Friday, ordered Ndume’s reinstatement. The judge particularly ordered Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Senate to ensure prompt payment of Ndume’s salaries and allowances. The judge said the suspension was an exhibition of lawlessness on the part of the Senate because it was unlawful on the part of the Senate leadership to have suspended Ndume in the first place. The judgment was on Ndume’s suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/551/2017, with which he challenged his suspension for 90 days via a letter dated March 30, 2017.
