Punishment for Ningi after senate’s suspension

Following the suspension of Ningi, the Kaduna-born politician explained the four punishments that any senator suspended from the national assembly would pass through.

His tweet reads in part:

“Suspension in the Senate means a Senator will not be allowed to attend the plenary and will be prohibited from attending committee meetings and participating in oversight functions.

“His Salary, allowances and all entitlements will be blocked. He will not have access to his office and is expected not to be seen within the premises of the National Assembly until the suspension is lifted.”

Why senate suspended Senator Ningi

Ningi’s suspension came after he disclosed in an interview that President Bola Tinubu was running the country with a budget higher than what was discussed and passed by the national assembly.
