Saraki: Senators contend on why NASS should reconvene on Tuesday


Senators both from the All Progressives Congress and the People Democratic Party will on Tuesday reconvene on Tuesday, despite not being decisive on what should be discussed at the plenary on the said day.

It was learnt that senators, who are loyal to the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, were insisting that the only agenda would be the consideration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s budget for the 2019 elections.

The anti-Saraki lawmakers on the other hand, said nothing was sacrosanct, adding that they could raise the issue of the leadership of the senate.

Following the defection of the Senate President and 13 other senators from the APC to the PDP, the ruling party had called on Saraki to resign.

But the Senate President on Wednesday said he would resign only if two-thirds of  senators passed a vote of no confidence in him.

A pro-Saraki senator, said, “On Tuesday our focus will be INEC budget. Those who think we will debate majority and leadership issues are wasting their time.”

But another senator, who is opposed to Saraki, said, “No issue is sacrosanct. Saraki’s issue will come up on Tuesday.”
