Just In: Ndume, Akpabio Clash As Senate Holds Emergency Closed Session


Senate President Godswill Akpabio suddenly called for an emergency closed session during plenary on Tuesday when the chief whip, Senator Ali Ndume, angrily staged a walkout.

Senator Ndume had raised a point of order, citing order 54 of the rule book to draw the attention of the Senate President to his handling of affairs in the chambers which were against the rules.

“Mr. President there are some things we do in this chamber that are against the rules. Sir, nobody is too big to learn,” Ndume said.

Akpabio had, hardly allowed Ndume to end his speech, when he ruled him out of order.

A visibly angry Ndume then stormed out of the chamber and went straight to his office.

Ndume was just settling down when he received a call from a colleague to return to the chamber for an executive session.

The executive session was still ongoing as of the time of writing this report.
