Today, Wednesday, 3rd June, 2015 will go down in history as the day with the most bills passed in ten minutes by the National Assembly.

The Senate passed 46 bills into law in less than ten minutes, with passage coming as soon as the bills were presented by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business, Senator Ita Enang.

However, the passage of the bills caused an uproar in the Senate even after the voice vote by the presiding officer and Senate President, David Mark who announced the vote was in favour of the ‘ayes’, while he asked those who were not satisfied with the passage of the bills to come tomorrow, with their names and signatures for consideration.

Before the bills were passed, the Senate had to suspend Order 79 (1) of the Senate Standing Orders and deemed all the Bills as having passed first, second and third readings on the floor.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
