Mrs Tinubu said that as a ranking senator and member of the majority party, she should be called to

move a motion and not to second one moved by a senator of a minority party.

The protest followed the presiding officer, Ike Ekweremadu’s decision to call on Gilbert Nnaji of the

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to move a motion for the adoption of the previous’ day votes and

proceedings.

After the motion was moved by Mr Nnaji, Mrs Tinubu rose to protest the choice of the ‘minority’

senator. “With every due respect Mr. President, can you give me a minute? Why would I second a

minority for crying out loud?” an obviously angry Mrs Tinubu said.

Her protest threw the chamber into a noisy session as many PDP senators counter-protested. After a

while, Mrs Tinubu continued her speech. “We are majority, you ought to choose a majority before

moving the motion “

Mrs Tinubu later said that she will only second the motion because the mover is a ‘ranking senator’,

noting that she would not have done otherwise if it was moved by ‘rookie senators.’

“This time, I would do it because I don’t want to waste much time, I would do it because you chose

Senator Gilbert Nnaji. Nnaji used to be my colleague in the 7th Senate but if you had taken some of

these new ones that came, I don’t think I would have done it.
