Chief Whip of Senate, Sen. Ali Ndume on Tuesday left the plenary, after President of Senate, Godswill Akpabio ruled him out of order.
Ndume had raised a point of order citing Order 54 of Senate rule, stating that it was the responsibility of the Chief Whip to remind and guide the Senate on procedure and processes of plenary.
Ndume through the order attempted to draw the attention of the Senate President to matters relating to proceedings of the Senate.
But the President of the Senate, shortly after listening to Ndume’s point of order said the section quoted by Ndume was not the same with the content of Order 54 cited and consequently ruled him out of order.
Guardian reported that Ndume left the plenary and went to his office, as the Senate President called for a closed session.
