The senate on Tuesday passed a vote of confidence on its leadership, amid ongoing crisis over allegations that rules were forged to elect the senate president and his deputy.
In a motion signed by 81 senators and moved by Nnaemeka Anyanwu (Imo East), the senate reaffirmed its endorsement of Bukola Saraki as senate president and Ike Ekweremadu as deputy senate president as well as the principal officers.
Saraki put the motion, which sought to “cement” the legitimacy of the leadership in the face of opposition, to a voice vote to which the lawmakers chorused “Aye” in agreement. There was no single dissenting voice.
