BREAKING: Senate in rowdy session over FG’s social intervention programme

The plenary at the Senate was thrown into a rowdy state on Wednesday when the Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujimi alleged that in the application form of the Social Intervention Programme of the Federal Government, which was introduced by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, details of permanent Voters card were being demanded from beneficiaries.


While presenting a copy of the form, she further alleged that ‘I Stand with Buhari’ was written on it.
Before the Majority Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan, who defended the Buhari-led administration and the programme could speak, the chamber had become noisy as the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party exchanged words in the house.

The APC lawmakers also forced the Senate to resolve that the SURE-P policy of the immediate past ‎PDP government led by former President Goodluck Jonathan be probed.
