PMB`s Letter Silence National Assembly

 

There was silence at the Red Chamber of the National Assembly on Tuesday 11th of December, 2018 as Senate President Bukola Saraki read a letter on the Presidential decision to decline assent to the Electoral amendment Bill, 2018.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Senators came in their numbers apparently to prevent anticipated plot by their People’s Democratic Party (PDP) colleagues to initiate moves to override the President’s assent on the controversial Bill.

Senator Saraki merely read the letter dated 6th December, 2018 which detailed reasons Buhari refused his assent to the Bill.

There was total silence in the chamber as Saraki read the two-page letter.

The Senate President filed it away after reading the letter.

Apprehensions Point of Order were raised for consideration of the presidential letter were dashed when senators kept quiet.

It was gathered that “apparently in line with the rule of the Senate, no senator was allowed to comment on the contents of the Presidential letter.”

It was also gathered that APC Senate caucus met on Monday to articulate how to foil any attempt to override the President’s assent.

Discovery also revealed that the APC caucus mobilised members to attend Tuesday’s sitting.

It was gathered members of the APC caucus were particularly stimulated to action by the comments of Senator Dino Melaye on a national television on Monday 10th of December,2018 on the voided Bill.

Dino Melaye, a Senator said, was apparently critical of PMB for rejecting the Bill “for us to leave anything to chance.”

According to Dino Melaye: “We were fully on standby to oppose any motion by Melaye and other PDP senators on the rejected Bill.

“We were prepared. We knew the stand of Melaye on matters of this nature. Nobody should be taken for granted.”

Attendance in the chamber on Tuesday 10th of December, 2018 was the highest by APC and PDP Senators in recent times.

It is uncertain what the next line of action will be on the rejected Bill.
