NASS Reconvenes: Agrees to a Peace Truce; Decries Buhari’s Serial Bill Rejections

NASS Reconvenes: Agrees to a Peace Truce; Decries Buhari’s Serial Bill Rejections

Contrary to the anxiety in several quarters, the Senate yesterday reconvened in a quiet mood resolving to put to rest the political brickbats that had distracted it from key national issues. According to a lawmaker, earlier threats and counter-threats by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers were dropped. He said the members agreed to give peace a chance and avoid allowing the red chamber of the federal legislature to degenerate into an arena of conflicts over partisan and personal issues.

It was equally learnt that the APC caucus extracted a promise from Senate President Bukola Saraki that national interest would continue to take precedence over other considerations during sittings. The senators were said to have agreed not to allow external forces and influences to cause disaffection among them. However, the chamber expressed concern over the serial rejections by President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Electoral Amendment Bill and others recently passed by the National Assembly. It, therefore, set up a technical committee to look into the unsigned pieces of legislation.
