Saraki Foils Move To Nullify Ekweremadu's Election As Deputy Senate President.. by BeeBeeOoh(m): 1:33pm On Jun 24, 2015
Written by Musa Abdullahi Krishi

Senate President Bukola Saraki on Wednesday stopped an attempt to nullify the election of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as deputy Senate president.

Ekweremadu who is of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) became deputy Senate president in an All Progressives Congress (APC) dominated Senate on June 9, in what appeared like a coup to some senators of the party who were at the International Conference Centers to attend a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

At Wedensday's plenary, Senator Kabiru Marafa raised a point of order where he observed that the election of Ekweremadu was in breach of the Senate standing rules.

He said the rules that the senate was using were initiated in 2011, which provides that an election into any of the presiding offices in the red chamber shall be via division and not secret ballot where two contestants are vying for any of the positions.

He observed however that Ekweremadu's election was done through secret ballot where he defeated Senator Ali Ndume of the APC. He wondered when the rules were amended and requested for an explanation from Saraki.

However, Saraki ruled him out of order, citing the Senate rules which provide that if a matter on presiding officer's election has been taken
care of, such cannot be considered any longer.

It is just a matter of time before the whole senate will scatter and things won't be able to hold again. Saraki better find a way to finally resolve with the Unity forum if he wants to last on that seat. How long will he continue to preside over such a divided house? The banana pill is not too far from him if the division continues.

what is keeping saraki is not APC members but 59 PDP senators.

They should just put this concluded issue at their back and move forward to carry out their statutory functions to the nation before their selfish ambitions plunge this country into a state of anarchy.

Saraki teaching APC skills he learnt from PDP. Once a PDP always a PDP. The true APCs are Tinubu and President Buhari.

A lots of intrigues are yet to fall in line. We are watching

Accept that which you cannot CHANGE APC. Ekweremmadu is Deputy Senate President till 2019. Even Daura President Dogo Yaro knows it.
