The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, on Tuesday, requested an urgent closed-door meeting of the Senate during plenary after the Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume, left the chamber following a ruling that deemed him out of order.
Ndume , a representative of Borno South , raised a point of order on alleged errors committed and not corrected by the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio.
The error referred to by Ndume, was a motion moved by Senator Summaila Kawu, for debate on the need for re-opening of the Nigerian-Niger Border, without stating the title of his motion.
Ndume said, ” This is the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria guided by laws, rules and procedures. If in the course of proceedings at any session, errors are observed, they must be corrected before forging ahead with such proceeding.”
