Senate Chief Whip, Ali Ndume, has opened up on the cause of the crisis in the National Assembly.

According to him, the discrimination in the distribution of committee chair positions by the parliament is the reason for the crisis besieging the Nigerian Senate house.

It was reported earlier that strong oppositions were plotting to impeach the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, when lawmakers resume from their two-month annual leave on September 26.

Speaking to the BBC, Ndume admitted that there was a mistake in the allocation of positions, but the gap that was found is not a new thing.

He said, “There are some grumblings on the ground, but this is not a new thing. I don’t think it will lead to the fact that they really want to remove the president of the Senate. He did not commit any crime that would lead to this.”

Sources say that members of the Senate, most of whom initially did not support the presence of Akpabio as the President of the Senate, accused him of being a puppet of the presidency.
