Shame: Senators Exchange Blows In Nigeria

This is ridiculous but it is the face of democracy in Nigeria.

Efforts made by the 59 senators of the APC in the Senate to resolve the lingering crisis over the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as President of the 8th Senate, ended in fiasco as some of the senators engaged each other in physical fight.

Disagreement between the two camps which led to verbal outbursts and exchange of blows between senators was sparked off when the senators belonging to the Like Minds and Unity Forum groups failed to reach middle ground on the procedure for the emergence of a candidate for the various leadership positions.

While the Saraki-led Like Minds Senators at the meeting insisted that the candidates for the various positions be zoned and the candidates produced at the caucus level, the Ahmad Lawan group under the aegis of Unity Forum disagreed.
