NASS Imbroglio: Peace Prevails At Last?
After weeks of intrigues, and consultations over the leadership crisis in the National Assembly, it seems the rift is coming to a peaceful end following events in both chambers during Tuesday plenary.
Before Tuesday’s resumption, the APC factions in both Chambers had refused to shift ground. Members of the factions had threatened to outwit one another. But President Muhammadu Buhari’s last minute intervention in the House of Representatives crisis yielded a fruitful result with the appointment of Mr.Femi Gbajabiamila as the Majority.
Also in the floor of the Senate, overwhelming vote of confidence was passed on the Senate leadership by 81 senators, including those of the Unity Forum that were initially opposed to the composition of the leadership.
As things stand today, one can quickly conclude that peace has returned to the National Assembly. But whether the peace is genuine or that of graveyard will be determined in days ahead, considering the fact that politics is a game of permanent interest, possibilities and continuous intrigues.
