The Senate on Tuesday went into a closed session to discuss President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to assent to the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill.
Senate President Ahmad Lawan arrived at the Chambers, took the opening prayers at 10.42am and announced that the upper chamber would go into a closed session.
Recall that President Buhari had rejected the Electoral Bill, citing security, cost, moral and other implications on the country’s electoral system and political parties.
It was observed that only a handful of Senators were at the chambers before the closed session commenced.
It is believed that the lawmakers would discuss the rejection of the Bill and take a position on whether to allow sleeping dogs to lie or recall the Bill and pass it with a two-thirds majority.
