Chief Whip of the Senate, Ali Ndume, has admitted that he has a daughter that works with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
This followed backlash that trailed his opposition to the proposed movement of some departments of the apex bank from Abuja to Lagos.
Ndue also opposed the relocation of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria from Abuja back to Lagos, stating that it was against Northern interest.
In an interview with Channels TV, the senator vowed that there will be political consequence if President Bola Tinubu continues with the decision to move the bodies from Abuja.
Ndume was immediately knocked by social media users who revealed that he was simply looking out for his daughter’s interest.
Speaking with TheCable on Monday, the senator backed his comment that there would be political consequences if the bodies are moved.
“Even if my ward is working in CBN, is she the only person that is going to be transferred to Lagos? There are hundreds of people that they planned to move to Lagos. Whenever an issue like this crops up, instead of addressing the issue, the people and some of the reporters will now concentrate on the messenger, not the message,” he said.
