A mild drama that occurred yesterday in the senate where a PDP senator from Abia State, ENYINNAYA ABARIBE made an attempt to convince his colleagues to confirm BUKOLA SARAKI as the Acting President.
According to Senator ABARIBE, there was a vacuum in government because the Acting President YEMI OSINBAJO was not in the country.
Recall that OSINBAJO, who did a day trip to the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, has been the President in acting capacity since President MUHAMMADU BUHARI left for London on medical vacation.
ABARIBE, in his contribution to a motion sponsored by AHMED YERIMA, senator representing Zamfara West, said the country was in a serious problem because there was nobody in Nigeria who is at the head of the federal government referring to the absence of BUHARI and OSINBAJO at the same time.
At this point, some of his colleagues interrupted him as most of the lawmakers spoke on top of their voices.
When calm was restored, KABIRU MARAFA, senator representing Zamfara Central, moved for a point of order insisting that ABARIBE abused the sensibilities of Nigerians by making the assertion that there is a vacuum in government.
