The lawmaker representing Borno South Senatorial District, Ali Ndume has claimed that Senate President, Ahmad Lawan made money out of the election for the senatorial seat in 2019.

Speaking during a live television interview, Ndume said Lawan spent money to become the Senate president and also made money after being sworn in as the President of the red chamber in the National Assembly.

The Borno lawmaker claimed that his Senate Presidency aspiration did not come to reality because he did not have the money to induce lawmakers at that time.

Speaking further, Ndume lamented that the true nature of the Senate leadership tussle revolves around financial influence rather than the candidates’ capacity, capability, and experience. 

Ndume added that he decided to throw his weight behind Godswill Akpabio this time around for reasons of stability, fairness and equity.
