Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has made peace with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senate caucus following the rowdy session that erupted on the floor of the senate on Wednesday.
The PDP senate caucus had stormed out of a plenary session after Saraki turned down senate minority leader, Godswill Akpabio’s plea to declare Senator Omogunwa’s seat, who defected to the APC, vacant.
A source told a national newspaper that Saraki held the peace meeting in Room 301, New Senate Building, with some members of the PDP senators.
“It wasn’t that Saraki came to beg PDP Senators. We met to straighten what you can call the crooked legs of our relationship. We told him it was not necessary to recognize Dino on all issues, especially when contentious issues are involved,” the source said.
“We also told him that the Constitution is sacrosanct and that there was no need to encourage the type of celebration we saw on Wednesday especially as he was in that shoe before when Senator Mark saved him from losing his seat.”
