Senate Backs Down On Threat To Veto President Jonathan On Constitution Amendment
After much hullabaloo over the threat by the Senate to veto President Jonathan on the amendment to the 1999 constitution, despite Supreme Court ruling on the matter, the red chamber on Wednesday bowed to the supremacy of the court.
The Senate after a closed-door session suspended every action on the amendment.
Senate President, Senator David Mark who presided over the plenary said “we are law makers and will not be law breakers. We are not just lawmakers, we are very senior responsible citizens and very senior lawmakers”
Senator Mark, however, said that the Senate will not be taken for granted.
