Senate confirms Ripples Nigeria story, removes Ndume as Leader

The Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, has warned that Nigeria may well face deadlier war than what it got from Boko Haram, if nothing is done to cushion the sufferings in the North-East, mostly Borno State.

Ndume reportedly said this at a cocktail organised to mark the official inauguration of Mrs Aisha Buhari, the wife of the President’s pet project, Get Involved Initiative.

The project is set to combat malnutrition in the North-East, a region that is currently facing the adverse effect of Boko Haram activities.

“The situation in the North East particularly in Borno State is very serious, if we do not do something concrete now on these children that are growing up malnourished, sick with hunger, and poverty in Borno State, then we are going to have another war that is worse than the Boko Haram.

“So, I want you to give the wife of the president, all the support. As estimated, if we don’t do something, for sure, more than 50,000 children are going to die of malnutrition. That is apart from the people that are dying right now because of hunger in Borno State,” Ndume is said.

Senator Ndume, was allegedly linked as one of the sponsors of Boko Haram in November 2011. His alleged connection to Boko Haram came after the Nigerian State Security Service’s interrogation of a suspected Boko Haram member and spokesman, Mallam Ali Konduga.

He was reportedly arrested on November 21, 2011, but was later absolved of any wrong doing after according to reports, it was discovered that the former governor of Borno State Ali Modu Sheriff, whom he earlier had political disagreements with has a hand in his ordeal as sources claimed that Sheriff swore to deal with him.
