Suspended Senator Mohammed Ndume resumed work on Wednesday after serving out seven months suspension, saying he begrudges nobody.
Ndume, dressed in white caftan, stormed the corridor of Senate’s wing with some of his supporters around 11:05 am when the plenary session had already started.
Few minutes after, Ndume announced his arrival through point of order asking his colleagues to observe a minute silence for late Senator Isiaka Adeleke who died while he was away on suspension.
The lawmaker from Borno South thanked his colleagues for pushing hard for adequate funding for the North East Development Commission, (NEDC), which was signed into law while he was on suspension.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki simply noted Ndume’s Point of Order.
Addressing newsmen, Ndume said he does not hold anyone responsible for his suspension.
He said he went to court not for any personal reason but to test the strength of Nigeria’s democracy on the matter.
Ndume was suspended on March 29, following his call to media reports against the Senate President alleged purchase of bulletproof SUV and certificate saga of Senator Dino Melaye.
