2019 polls sequence: INEC can stop Nat’l Assembly from changing sequence- Senator Gumel

The Senate on Wednesday adopted the conference committee report on the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill, which recommended that the presidential election will be the last to be conducted in 2019.
Efforts made by senators loyal to President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the adoption of the Conference Report of Senate on the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill 2015 were resisted by Senate President Bukola Saraki who ruled them out of order.
In protest, the pro-Buhari senators, who felt that the reordering of the sequence of 2019 elections was targeted at the President, walked out of the Red Chamber.
