However, when the matter came up for deliberation and was moved by the Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, the senator representing Kogi West, Senator Dino Melaye indicated to lead a debate on the matter, but was turned down by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki

It was later subjected to a voice vote, at the end of which the ‘Nays’ turned out the loudest vote.
