- Former Senate leader Ali Ndume continues to enjoy his freedom following his recent release from prison
- Ndume attended an event recently with former Nigerian president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan present
- The Borno state senator expressed regret over criticising Jonathan when he was president
Senator Ali Ndume has said that former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan left a landmark and value in Nigeria and its political landscape following the expiration of his tenure in 2015.
The senator representing Borno South senatorial district confessed that when Jonathan was in power he used to criticise the former president but now, he appreciates him more.
Ndume speaking further revealed that though other people were skeptical about the ex-president’s behaviour, they too have realised how great he is
The Borno senator added that many Nigerians don’t value what they have until they lose it.
“I must confess, as people call me stubborn person, I’m also a stubborn person… I feel I need to make this testimony here, and also appreciate Mr.(Former) President, as they say you will never know what you have until you lose it. I will stop there."
Legit.ng recalls that Ndume was granted bail by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. He spent a few days in Kuje prison after Justice Okon Abang ordered that the senator be remanded for failing to provide Abdulrasheed Maina, a former chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, who is facing trial over an alleged N2 billion money laundering.
The Borno senator had been detained in prison since Monday, November 23, over his suretyship for Maina, who is believed to have jumped bail.
Senator Ndume's arrest, however, sparked outrage from some northern Nigerian groups who insisted that his arrest was an act of injustice.
