  • Monkeys invade cart away N70m in senator’s farm house – Shehu Sani

But refusing to allow the matter to die, Senate Spokesperson, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, absolved himself of any blame, saying he refused to comment on the issue when he briefed journalists on Wednesday.

However, Adamu, who had previously chided ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo for criticising the Muhammadu Buhari-led government, denied the allegations.

The dissenting senators had alleged that the amendment was hurriedly passed' with a pre-determined motive, and that it's targeted at the president.

Presiding, Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, announced Adamu's removal, while reading from a notice signed by the Public Relations Officer of the forum, Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi APC). "Find the attached names and signatories of members", the letter read.

Adamu, who was immediately replaced by Senator Aliyu Wamakko, is accused of "financial mismanagement" and "misadministration". We announce his immediate replacement with Senator Aliyu Wamakko. According to Senator Shehu Sani (APC Kaduna Central), under Adamu's leadership, the forum could not account for part of the money inherited from the 7th Assembly. There are some things that some of my colleagues can not say, but I am not used to holding back what is the truth. That N70 million was money gathered from the 7th Senate.

However, in an exclusive interview with Channels Television on Wednesday night, the Senator Adamu said the allegation against him is because he rejected the decision of the Senate.

"But, I will stand by my decision". "Monies were spent without the consent of members or the excos".

"We are not doing the things that we are supposed to do and we need to inject some vibrancy into the organisation, and that many positions have been taken without consulting with the Exco and other members of the organisation".

Adamu was until his removal on Wednesday the Chairman of the NSF.

Adamu was removed for allegedly misappropriating seventy million naira kept in his care.

Adamu and Omo-Agege are part of the 10 All Progressives Congress, senators who walked out of the Senate chamber when the lawmakers passed the amendment in concurrence with the House of Representatives. But in beating a retreat, OmoAgege rose through order 43 of the Senate's standing rules under personal explanation to apologise.
