During an interview with Channels TV yesterday, Senator Olusola Adeyeye who is the senate chief whip revealed that the senate rules were altered.
Adeyeye who was a senator in the last senate, says the senate order being used by the 8th Senate is different from the one that was used in the last senate, but he said he would not be direct on if the current senate order had been forged.
“I don’t know how to answer that and the reason is this. I am a member of the current senate. I am a principle officer of the current senate. The rules that we have now are different from the one we had in the 7th National Assembly. There is no question about that. Let the court decide whether it was forged or not. The senate rule was altered”
“The main alteration in the senate order is that in the 7th National Assembly, voting had to be done publicly. In this current one, it was done privately. There are other things. I don’t want to get into it because the case is in court. It is not fair for me to do that,” he said.
