    In his remarks, Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki sustained the Committee reports, while thanking the Committee for the detailed screening of nominees.

    Meanwhile, the joint Committee of the Senate and House of Representatives on reordered elections was read with near uproar by Senators opposed to making presidential election last on the timetable.

    As the report was being read by the INEC Committee Chairman, Senator Ovwie Omo-Agege through a point of order asked for rejection, saying, conference report was against traditions of the Senate.

    But he was overruled by Senate President, who insisted that it was a normal tradition for conference reports to be read.
