The Senate has resolved to write the Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Walter Onnoghen, to expressed their reservations about the judgment by a Federal High Court stopping the National Assembly from overriding President Muhammadu Buhari’s veto on the amended Electoral Act.

The Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, moved a motion at the plenary on Thursday to state that the judgment amounted to “an abuse of the principle of separation of powers.”

He prayed that the Senate writes the CJN on the matter, which was unanimously granted.
