A bill which will enforce that an elected President and Vice President of Nigeria be inaugurated at the premises of the National Assembly was on Thursday passed by the Senate.
The passage of the bill sponsored by the Deputy Senate President, IKE EKWEREMADU, followed several debates on the report of the Senate Committee on Special Duties.
Reading the report, chairman of the committee, Abdul-Aziz Nyako, noted that the bill if assented to will “be a welcome development as the National Assembly represents all segments of the country.”
After several debates, the senators passed the bill through a voice vote.
Before now, inauguration of presidents and vice presidents of the federation takes place at the Eagles Square in the Federal Capital Territory under the oath administered by the Chief Justice of the Federation.
