Senate Passes Vote Of confidence On Saraki
The Senate on Tuesday passed a Vote of Confidence on Senator Abubakar Olubukola Saraki’s presidency, putting to bed insinuations in some quarters that it is divided.
The motion, which was moved by Senator Samuel Anyanwu (Imo east), had a wide range of support base and acceptance of majority of the Senate, as 81 Senators supported the motion.
The passage of the Vote of Confidence on Saraki’s leadership as President of the Senate has effectively laid to rest insinuations of rancour among the Senators, who are said to be displeased with the Senate President.
It would be recalled that Saraki emerged President of the 8th Senate entirely on the goodwill of majority of the Senators who voted for him as their preferred choice against the wish of some of his party members.
However, with the latest development, those rumours and insinuations of a divided Senate can be said to be over, as an overwhelming majority voted to pass the motion of a Vote of Confidence on his leadership.
