Senate In Rowdy Session Over State Of Nation Address Bill

Deliberations by the senate on the State of the Nation Address Bill on Wednesday witnessed a stormy session as senators were sharply divided on the bill.

President Goodluck Jonathan had earlier withheld his assent on the state of the nation address bill passed by the two chambers of the National Assembly.

The President argued that the 1999 constitution had made provisions for the state of the nation address adding that legislation on the matter would amount to duplication.

However attempt by some senators to override the President’s veto led to a rowdy session in the senate.
