The rejection of the President

Saraki vetoed the rejection of nominees by the members of the Senate after it was put to voice vote during a plenary on Tuesday, November 1, 2016.

Punch report says despite the obvious fact that the “nays” were more than the “ayes,” the Senate President ruled in favour of the “ayes.”

The drama occurred minutes after the Senate had voted and rejected Buhari’s request for legislative approval for his $30bn external borrowing plan.
