The Senate resumed plenary Wednesday on a rowdy note as the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujinmi, accused the federal government of politicising the disbursement of the Special Intervention Fund.

She had barely finished her submission when some senators across political divides started shouting as soon as the Senate Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan, was recognised to speak by the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki.

Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West) moved from his seat and started shouting Point of Order before Saraki had to ask him to return to his seat.

Attempts by Lawan to justify government’s disbursement of the Special Intervention Fund was interrupted several times by shouts of ‘No’ ‘No’ by some senators and it took the intervention of Saraki before order could be restored to the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
