Former Senate leader Ali Ndume says he has accepted his replacement in good faith and he wishes the new Leader well.
Speaking Wednesday afternoon on a live transmission from the National Television, Ndume added that he holds no grudge against his colleagues despite everything.
All Progressives Congress members in the Senate had on Tuesday requested that he be replaced as Senate leader.
The caucus in a letter read by Senate President Bukola Saraki said they want to replace Ndume with Ahmed Lawan.
Ndume however says if his decision about confirming Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission caused him to be replaced, his position remains unchanged.
“I have not done anything. If anything, we disagreed on the confirmation of Magu as Chairman of EFCC and I still stand by my position that Magu was not rejected and he is from my state”
Ndume said he was simply doing his work then as the Senate Leader
“I’m the Senate Leader at that time. My responsibility is, I’m the Chief marketing Officer of everything that the President brought. So I had to or I have to stand by a nominee from my state and a nominee by Mr. President. If that event re-occurs again, I will still do that. ”
