It eIt emerged, yesterday, that the Senate leadership could declare seats of defecting senators vacant.
While the APC has already taken the ascendancy in the House of Representatives with its members set to take over the control of the House later this month, the scenario in the Senate, is being complicated by the determination of the Senate President, David Mark’s leadership to strictly enforce the rules.
According to report, Mark is is determined to safeguard the dominance of the PDP in the Senate. Mark it was claimed is not unaware of the fact that safeguarding the dominance of the PDP is a way of keeping his own position.
More so, Mark is under pressure from PDP members to strictly enforce the provisions of the constitution which forbid members of the National Assembly from changing parties unless there is faction in the party through which they were elected.
The Senate is not due to resume until later this month.
