Happening Now! Senate Move To Declare Saraki As Acting President !

A mild drama occurred on the floor of the Senate, on Tuesday, when a point of order was raised, that the Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki was the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Senate, upon resumption from its 3 weeks break, received a communication from Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Acting President of Nigeria, seeking the confirmation of Mr. Lanre Gbajabiamila, as the Director General of National Lottery Regulatory Commission.

The lawmakers, however, subjected the letter to deliberations, owing to the fact that the Acting President, had earlier reportedly said the Senate had no power to confirm nominees.

Senator Eyinanya Abaribe (Abia South), had raised a motion that the country had no President or Acting President at the moment, adding that, President Muhammadu Buhari and Professor Yemi Osinbajo were neither in the country, as at the time.

This was greeted with a counter point, coming through order 53 rule 4 of the Senate standing rules, by Senator Kabiru Marafa (Zamfara Central).

Marafa who cited relevant sections of the Nigerian constitution, said, “if the President is not around, the Vice President should act, and if the Vice President is not around, the Senate President, who is the number 3 citizen should become acting President.”

The Senate President, however, didn’t allow any seconder or more comments, even when Senators were agitating to support the motion. He quickly ruled Senator Marafa “out of order.”

    Both Acting President Osimbajo and weakly President Buhari are incompetent.When we go by what senator Marafa wanted to say, he about to make sense before he was ruled out of oder.Yes, If the president and the president and vice president are not capable of continuing in the office, the 3 Citizen of this country should become the president.Now come to think of it this way: Buharia is not Physically capable, and Osibanjo, being a novice in the affairs of politics is not competent. If they are competent, why should our so called president Buharia be medling in the internal affair of Moroko, supporting Western Sahara to secede from the mother country.Moreso, why Buharia overtly pledging support for Palestinians in Isreal to gain freedom.This is an incompetent president who roll thanks on innocent Biafrans on their peace demonstration. Saraki should Step in as the acting president as fast as posible. God help us.
