Nigerian Senate to debate State of Emergency in secret

The Senate if going to a closed door session.

The Nigerian Senate has decided to hold a closed door session to debate the controversial State of Emergency announced by President Goodluck Jonathan.

The Senate President made the announcement after reading the president’s letter informing the Senate of the emergency declaration in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.

With the closed session, Nigerians would not be given the opportunity to know the views canvassed by individual lawmakers on the matter.

At least two-thirds of the members of the Senate (72 senators) and the House of Representatives (240 members) must approve the declaration for it to be valid.

    These men are cowards. Our senators are cowards. when the president wanted to declare a state of emergency did he do it secretly? when Boko Haram wants to kill their victims, do they do it secretly? Why are they discussing the matter in closed session. Cowards!!! Men who can not come and speak for the truth. Have the killing been secret? It shows that we have men who do not have this nation at heart but who are after only pecuniary gains. Shame on the Senate, Fellowship of Cowards!!!!
