Elections Sequence: How Senators Will Vote For Buhari, Saraki

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives have reintroduced the Bill, which the President turned down largely because of the the reordering of elections sequence

It is almost certain now that President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly, especially the Senate, are headed for a face-off over the refusal of the President to accent to the amended Electoral Act Bill.

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives have reintroduced the Bill, which the President turned down largely because of the the reordering of elections sequence.

In the impending face-off, senators have become divided, forming camps between Buhari and the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.

Indeed, Senators Rabiu Kwankwaso, Kabiru Marafa and Ahmad Sani Yerima are among the senators pushing for the Senate to override Buhari on the Electoral Amendment Act.

Marafa, who is from Zamfara State, was among the senators protecting the interest of Buhari in the Senate at the inception of the 8th National Assembly until he was appointed as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream Sector).

His decision, for instance, to join the pro-Saraki senators might be as result of the running battle between him and his State Governor, Abdul-Aziz Yari, and the disposition of the President towards him.
