Attempt To Declare Saraki Acting President Fails At Senate by fastjett: 2:31pm On Jul 04, 2017
A mild drama occurred on the floor of the Senate, on Tuesday, when a point of order was raised, that the Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki was the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Senate, upon resumption from its 3 weeks break, received a communication from Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Acting President of Nigeria, seeking the confirmation of Mr. Lanre Gbajabiamila, as the Director General of National Lottery Regulatory Commission.


The lawmakers, however, subjected the letter to deliberations, owing to the fact that the Acting President, had earlier reportedly said the Senate had no power to confirm nominees.

Senator Eyinanya Abaribe (Abia South), had raised a motion that the country had no President or Acting President at the moment, adding that, President Muhammadu Buhari and Professor Yemi Osinbajo were neither in the country, as at the time.

This was greeted with a counter point, coming through order 53 rule 4 of the Senate standing rules, by Senator Kabiru Marafa (Zamfara Central).


Marafa who cited relevant sections of the Nigerian constitution, said, “if the President is not around, the Vice President should act, and if the Vice President is not around, the Senate President, who is the number 3 citizen should become acting President.”

The Senate President, however, didn’t allow any seconder or more comments, even when Senators were agitating to support the motion. He quickly ruled Senator Marafa “out of order.”

Very foolish and stewpid senator, the president and in this case acting president can give directives anywhere he is located it does not hinders his powers. These fools should cease cracking such silly jokes. The acting president is on an offical visit abroad.

Leadership in Nigeria is like when you pour beans in water. Those that float up are the bad ones.

How can Senators talk as if they lack analytic, deductive and commonsensical reasoning? So, if a Governor travels out on an official assignment to attract investors, he's no longer the Governor?

The Senate should get their acts together and stop talking like a congregation of unintelligent drunkards.

Tinubu foresaw these kinds of issues with the National assembly, that was why he tried unsuccessfully to ensure those leading both legislative arm of Government are those loyal to APC but Buhari in his foolishness said he doesn't care who emerges as Senate president and the Speaker!

I am sure he is regretting that action wherever he is. How can people of the same political party be acting like oppositions?!

What does the future hold for Nigeria?



This is a question on the minds of many.



Surely the future holds a lot.



IT brings to mind a popular Ogbu phrase "ECHI D'IME" .
