All They Are Trying To Do Is To Silence Or Arrest Me” – Ningi Fires At Akpabio


Senator Abdul Ningi (Bauchi Central) has declared that the can of worms he opened in the Senate cannot be controlled.

Ningi, a former Majority Leader in the upper chamber, had alleged that N3.7 trillion was not traceable to any project in the 2024 budget.

The lawmaker made the claim in an interview he granted to BBC Hausa over the weekend.

When the upper legislative chamber sat on Tuesday, Ningi, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator, was suspended for three months.

Speaking on the development when he was featured as a guest on Arise TV after the suspension, Ningi claimed that members of the Senate were determined to get him silenced or arrested.

His words: “That is why I said I know this parliament very well; I have come a long way. And that is why we are speaking. Let’s speak.

“Have they ever asked me since the beginning of this so-called crisis, where are your findings? Where are the documents? I’m not using my head to come up with figures.

“Nobody has talked to me about evidence. Nobody has suggested even listening to me. All they are trying to do is to ensure that ‘how do we make sure that Ningi is silenced or arrested so that he doesn’t do anything?’.

“I have opened this can of worms. Neither they nor I will be able to control it.”
