Last week, a group of senators from the APC rejected the Senate adoption of the conference committee report on amendment to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Act.

The Kogi West senator, who cited Order 14 of the Senate Standing Rules, urged his colleagues to refer the matter to the Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions Committee to investigate the claims made by senators.

The senators are Abdullahi Adamu (Nasarawa-West), Abu Ibrahim (Katsina-North), Abdullahi Gumel (Jigawa-North), Ali Wakili (Bauchi-South), Binta Masi Garba (Adamawa-North), Ovie Omo-Agege (Delta-Central), Umar Kurfi (Katsina-Central), Andrew Uchendu (Rivers-East), Benjamin Uwajumogu (Imo-North), and Abdullahi Yahaya (Kebbi-North).

Melaye said he swore on assumption of office as senator of the federal republic of Nigeria to do good to all manner of men including the President and, could not afford to be partial in making his contributions in the chamber.

The amendment to Section 25 of the Electoral Act provides that the National Assembly election holds first, followed by the state Houses of Assembly and governorship elections, while the presidential election comes last, instead of the current order where the presidential poll holds first.

"You don't make a law targeted at one person".

He claimed further: "When this bill was passed in the House of Representatives, only 36 members were present".

"If decisions in this Senate are now being teleguided and targeted at any particular person, then that is no longer democracy".

The information should have been sent to the FBI Miami Field Office but was never forwarded, officials said. Cruzs lawyers said there were many warning signs that he was mentally unstable and potentially violent.

The furore in the Senate over the recent amendment to the Electoral Act is far from over as the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday directed its Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions to investigate allegations made by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (Delta APC) that the adoption of the change in order of elections, is targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari.

"I can not be part of a group or group of persons; I swore an oath on the 9th of June 2015, with a Bible on my right hand and the Constitution of the Federal Republic on my left". That statement, to me, is wary. "The only place that I didn't follow him to was Yobe, where we did not even go to throughout the campaign".

"When I was following the president round the country, Omo-Agege was in the Labour Party (LP)".

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided, subjected the issue to a voice vote.

"To now alleged and put the integrity of the Senate under check that the amendment was tailored towards the President is unheard of".

While moving the motion on the floor of the Senate, yesterday, Melaye said he did not want to be part of any move targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that Buhari was not only a party man but also someone he laboured for.

Ruling on the motion, Ekweremadu asked the committee to investigate the matter and report back in two weeks.
