I didn’t snub Senate – Udoma replies Ndume

It was gathered that the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, on Thursday described as untrue accusation by the Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume, that he snubbed the senate by refusing to turn up for a scheduled meeting on Tuesday.

Udoma in a three paragraph statement issued by his Media Adviser, Mr Akpandem James, expressed surprise over the allegations.

The minister said while he was invited by the senate leadership to a meeting, the meeting could not hold because there was an agreement for it to be moved to another date.

He, however, wondered why despite the agreement to reschedule the meeting, Ndume could still go to the floor of the senate to claim that he did not turn up for the initial meeting.

The statement reads in part, “The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma has expressed surprise at the accusation by the Senate leader, Senator Ali Ndume, to the effect that he snubbed the Senate and refused to turn up for a scheduled meeting on November 1, 2016.

“While acknowledging receipt of the letter from Senator Ndume inviting him for a meeting with the Senate leadership, the minister said the meeting was eventually moved by agreement; and wondered why Senator Ndume would go on the floor of the upper legislative chamber to say he failed to turn up, when he was aware that the meeting was rescheduled.”
