Everything Is Now Monetized – Senator Ali Ndume

Ali Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume, representing Borno South has said he has vast experience in the Nigerian Parliament and has what it takes to become the next Senate President but he however pointed out that he had no money to share to realize his dreams.

“If I’m rich and can share money as was being done presently to get positions in the Senate, with my experience, I tell you I would’ve become the President of the Senate. There is nothing like considering competence, everything was monetized. Even those who knew nothing about the legislative procedures, simply because they have money, they are now in the hot pursuit for the position of Senate President,” he alleged.
