Gemade, Others Accuses NASS Clerk Of Conspiracy. by elubiazo: 7:04pm On Jun 10, 2015

ABUJA—SOME senators opposed to the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as
Senate President, Tuesday, accused the Clerk of the National Assembly, Alhaji
Salisu Maikasua of conspiring with senators of the opposition Peoples
Democratic Party, PDP, against the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The lawmakers, who disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari had, prior to
the Tuesday’ inauguration of the National Assembly, asked Maikasua to delay
the inauguration, due to his proposed meetings with legislators of the APC fold
before election of the principal officers commenced, accused him of
disobedience to the president.
Speaking through Senator Barnabas Gemade, APC, Benue North East, the
senators wondered why the clerk, without confirmation on whether the said
meeting had ended, opened the gate, thereby letting opposition senators gain
entry to elect new principal officers of the National Assembly, leaving others
behind.
Briefing newsmen in Abuja, on the development, Gemade fumed: “The clerk of
the National Assembly knowing fully well that a quorum for election of the
Senate President has not been met, went ahead to conduct an election that
shuts the door to about 53 other senators which would remain unacceptable…
“It was necessary for us to believe that the president had actually sought a
slight delay to enable him speak to the senators that he had agreed to speak
to. I think that respect begets respect and for that reason, we expected that if
the president had made that request to the clerk, it would be reasonable for the
clerk to be mindful of the fact and the status of the president of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria and in view of those members that were called to the
meeting. But unfortunately, this was not done, “he added. VANGUARD.

I expect these law makers to accept what has happened and build on if at all the masses are what they have at heart. Else, they party would only implode and they end up losing in all fronts.
