Senate

Contrary to speculations that senators were collecting signatures to impeach President Buhari, Saturday Telegraph was reliably informed that there was no such move in the apex legislative chamber at the moment.

A senator, who is close to the leadership of the Senate and spoke on the condition of anonymity told our correspondent that the speculation was unfounded and should therefore, be disregarded by the general public.

The National Assembly, had on Tuesday, cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari to respect the rule of law, curtail killings across the country and stop the harassment and humiliation of political opponents or it would evoke relevant provisions of the Constitution against him.The National Assembly also passed a vote of confidence in the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

Conversely, the members of the nation’s highest lawmaking body, reaffirmed its earlier passage of vote of no confidence in the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The National Assembly passed these resolutions following its emergency joint closed session, which lasted for three hours in the House of Representatives Chamber.

While reading out the resolutions of the joint session, the President of the Senate, noted that the Session directed President Buhari to give a marching order to security agencies to curtail the killings across the country and protect lives of innocent Nigerians who were being massacred on daily basis.
