UPDATE: Why APC Plotted Deadly Coup Against Ndume, Tinubu Implicated 

The All Progressive Congress, APC, Lawmakers, on Tuesday, January 10, fired the Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, after returning from a long break, to mark the Christmas and the New year seasons.

The letter which was read by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, noted that the party caucus ‎members fired Ndume, who is to be replaced by Ahmed Lawan‎, the earlier choice of the party, as Senate President.

Many Political Analysts have however, postulated that Ndume’s removal might not be unconnected ‎with the indictment of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and the rejection of Ibrahim Magu, as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

‎Recall, that ‎Ndume had claimed the Senate neither rejected, nor indicted the officials, prompting a counter-reaction by the Senate’s Spokesperson, Aliyu Abdullahi.

The development, which did not go down well with many of the Senators, who stood by the Senate’s unanimous decision, was said to have raised some dust, which eventually consumed Ndume.

Ndume, reacting to his removal while speaking to Journalists, ‎said the decision of the caucus to remove him as Leader, came as a shock.

He said, he was oblivious of what led to the decision, or where the meeting was held to remove him.

Meanwhile, sources close to the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, have expressed delight over the ‎leadership reshuffle in the Senate.

A source, told Post-Nigeria that the APC National Leader, specifically endorsed the move, before Saraki finally announced the removal of Ndume.
