The Senate Chief Whip, Senator Ali Ndume, has said that he is more experienced than Senate President Godswill Akpabio on issues of parliament.

Ndume, representing Borno South, said this while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

The Borno federal lawmaker has been in the Upper Legislative Chamber since 2011, while Akpabio was first elected into the senate in 2015.

Ndume explained why he walked out of the red chamber after Akpabio ruled him out of order.

He said he had tried to draw the attention of the senate president to the rule book on the management of a crisis — but Akpabio was having none of it and ruled him out of order.

Ndume stated he campaigned for Akpabio to emerge the President of the Senate, and he will not sit back to watch what he built for to be destroyed.
“My problem is the way he handled the situation and what happened the last time was misunderstood or taken out of context. Don’t forget that I fought here, campaigned for Akpabio. You can’t build a house and destroy it,” Ndume said.

The main problem is that I’m more experienced than him. When I tried to correct him… you don’t overrule your chief whip.

“At that time, he was supposed to invite me then we would talk more one-on-one but he took advantage of the gavel and it was 12:30 pm and I needed to go and pray.”
