Abdul Ningi, senator representing Bauchi central, has resigned as chairman of the Northern Senators Forum (NSF).

Ningi’s resignation comes after the senate suspended him for three months over the claim that the 2024 budget was padded by N3 trillion.

The lawmaker announced his resignation in a letter dated March 11, 2024, addressed to the secretary of NSF.

“I will like to resign my position as Chairman Northern Senators Forum,” the letter reads.

“This is of course necessitated by the unfolding events in the National Assembly, the North and the nation at large.

“I will like to specially thank  members of the forum for the opportunity given to me for the last eight months to spearhead this very important forum.

“I believe this forum is very important and fundamental to the progress and development of Northern Nigeria.”
