Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has expressed full support for Senator Abdul Ningi, the legislator who received a three-month suspension following his statement questioning the absence of the N3.7 trillion in the 2024 budget.

Ningi, who represents Bauchi Central senatorial district in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, was officially suspended by the Senate on Tuesday.

Speaking during the State Executive Council meeting at the Government House, Bauchi, on Wednesday, Mohammed said, “yesterday I was very sad the Senate suspended one of our best from Bauchi for saying the truth, for standing up to be the beacon of the truth.”

“Equally I don’t know what we will do but we will discuss privately to see what we can do to support him because I support whatever he is doing and that is our best position especially if what he saying is the truth,”
