The Senate has  changed its mind on the continued suspension of former Senate leader, Ali Ndume; and has announced that  the Borno South senator can resume on Wednesday.

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary today, Tuesday, made the announcement after an executive session.

The move according to Sen. Ekweremadu is “without prejudice to the case pending in court.”

It will be recalled that Senator Ndume was a close ally of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, until 6 months ago, when they fell apart.

It was speculated that Sen. Ndume, a strong supporter of the EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, was foot-dragging in the senate onslaught against the EFCC boss.

Over the weekend, a press release signed by Mike Ozekhome, claimed that the senate will appeal the order of the Federal High Court which nullified Sen. Ndume's suspension as being illegal.
