Budget Padding: Your voice can’t be suspended – Atiku to Sen Ningi

The 2023 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday, said the voice of Bauchi Central Senator, Abdul Ningi can’t be suspended from the people’s hearts.

Atiku said those who bear true conscience are welcome to his house.

Posting on X, Atiku wrote: “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. -AA”

In March, DAILY POST reported that the Senate suspended Ningi for three months over his allegation of budget padding.

His suspension followed an interview with BBC Hausa where he claimed that the Federal Government was operating two versions of the 2024 budget.

Ningi claimed that the N28.7 trillion budget passed by the National Assembly and signed into law by President Bola Tinubu was skewed against the North.

Following his suspension, he was recalled on May 28 after the Deputy Minority Leader Senator Abba Moro initiated a process, expressing regret on his behalf.

The Bauchi Central senator resumed at the National Assembly on Tuesday after he was recalled.
