President Muhammadu Buhari’s personal assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has condemened the suspension of former Senate majority leader, Ali Ndume.Onochie in a Facebook post on Thursday said the Senate has been hijacked by some persons who are being haunted by their past.
She also said that the upper chamber has no right to denied any part of the country representation in the legislature.
She wrote, “It is very clear that the people’s parliament, otherwise known as the Senate, has been hijacked by a few unwholesome men who are haunted by their past and yes, the present.
“There is no power in the constitution of Nigeria that gives the right to the Senate to deny any part of Nigeria their representation by suspending any senator. That is where I stand!
“The Nigerian Senate continues to play the role of the accuser, the police, the court and the executioner. Impunity and the height of ignorance.
“It is obvious that the Nigerian Senate has no regard for our institutions like the police and the law courts. We can’t remember when they had evidence against anyone and handed the matter to the police.”
