APC Senators Stop Motion On Buhari’s Democracy Day Speech

Senators of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday blocked a motion that sought to debate the speech delivered by President Muhammadu Buhari on Nigeria’s Democracy Day.

Senator Istifanus Dung Gyang (PDP, Plateau) brought the motion on the floor of the Senate.

He said: “The motion has to do with the speech by President Muhammadu Buhari on Democracy Day. The speech is already in the public domain and had generated a lot of interest.”

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan subjected the motion to voice votes and APC Senators shouted it down.
