Senators of the opposition parties staged a walk out during plenary session on Wednesday, July 27.

About 20 lawmakers, walked out of the chamber after the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, stopped a motion on insecurity and impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

After a two hours closed session, the lawmakers commenced plenary for the day. Senate President, Lawan announced after the executive session:

“The Senate in a closed session deliberated issues bordering the workings of the Senate in particular and the National Assembly in general.”

As plenary began, the Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda, raised a Point of Order, reminding the Senate of its resolutions taken after the closed-door session.

He also mentioned that they have to “give the president an ultimatum to resolve the issues of insecurity in the country and give an impeachment notice if the demands are not met.”

The Senate President immediately interrupted him saying he did not follow the right procedure for raising a point of order.

“First, you are supposed to cite the order. Second, you’re supposed to discuss the matter with me.

The minority's raised the concerns following the high rate of insecurity in the country.
