The Senator representing Borno South, Ali Ndume has again spoken about his rift with the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio.

The Senate Chief Whip said he is older than Akpabio and can advise him on issues concerning the Senate.

He spoke while featuring on Arise TV programme, Morning Show on Friday.

According to Ndume: “I’m older than Akpabio and can advise him on issues of the Senate. I was the DG campaign of Akpabio, so by virtue of my position, I was his number one supporter and marketer to become the Senate President.

“We can disagree to agree, but not to fight. Myself and Akpabio are colleagues, we have the same interest.”

In October, Akpabio and Ndume were involved in a shouting match on the floor of the senate.

The friction led to Ndume walking out of the Senate while in session.
