Senate has taken new action over electoral bill.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Senate on Tuesday took a new action by going into a closed session to take a position on President Muhammdu Buhari refusal to assent to the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill.
Senate President Ahmad Lawan arrived the Chambers, took the opening prayers at 10.42am and announced that the upper chamber would go into a closed session.
President Buhari had rejected the Electoral Bill, citing security, cost 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 dog lie or recall the Bill and pass it with a two-thirds majority.
