President of the Senate

By Nuel Suji, Abuja.

The Senate on Monday described as false, media reports purporting a plot by some aggrieved senators to remove the President of the Senate, Senator David A.B. Mark. 

Senate Spokesman, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe in a statement in Abuja, said such unfounded story only exists in the imagination of its authors.

He added that senators operating as a body of one united family, have never at any time found any ground to move against its leadership or even thwart the long-standing camaraderie the upper chamber is known for, irrespective of political party affiliation. 

The senate, Abaribe said, has a tested internal mechanism, which has severally been ably deployed by the President of the senate and members of his leadership to tackle any difficult issues that arises within and outside the chamber.

Such mechanisms and channels according to Abaribe are inexhaustible and shall always be deployed by the leadership of the senate, as it always does when the need arises.

“Senators have implicit confidence in the leadership of the Senate ably led by Senator Mark and there is nothing now to suggest or confer any iota of truth on the media insinuation of any form of schism that could warrant the removal of the President of the Senate”, he said.

Abaribe however urges restraint on the reportage of issues that are not factual.
