There was a mild drama at the Senate's plenary Thursday when the Wife of a leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Senator Oluremi Tinubu accused the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, of demoting her.

Tinubu, (APC, Lagos Central) who chairs Senate Committee on Women Affairs challenged Saraki for placing Senator Andy Uba higher than her during the adoption of votes and proceedings.

Dailytrust reports that both Tinubu and Saraki are second timers at the Upper Chamber. They have been at the Red Chamber since 2011.

Saraki had at the commencement of Thursday's sitting asked Senator Uba (PDP, Anambra South) to move the motion for the adoption of votes and proceedings of Wednesday in line with the tradition.

He also asked Senator Tinubu to second it, but when she stood up, she protested it, saying " I will second it grudgingly, I won't thank you for demoting me, God is here.

"I was a better Senator than him even when we were at the seventh Senate but I will second the votes and proceedings," she said, and general laughter rented the floor.

That refusal to second a motion should not be a laughing matter at all because, these should be part of Saraki's style of pleasing PDP. We hope to see how the CCT verdict would play out as he is already guilty as charged, and may be, when he is out of NASS, he would know that his game plan is over!
