Ningi also thanked the Senate for recalling him.

His words: “Mr President, distinguished colleagues, I rise with profound humility to commend the senate, its president, Senator Godswill Akpabio, the senate leadership, and the minority caucus for recalling me from suspension.

“I was in Turkey when the news got to me last week, and I’m very appreciative of the gesture.
