There was uproar in the Senate on Wednesday when senators passed 46 bills introduced by Senator Ita Enang into law under 10 minutes.
Senator Enang is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business.
The rowdy session caused by the speedy passage of the bills led the Senate President David Mark to request senators not satisfied with the passage of the bills to report on Thursday with their names and signatures for consideration.
The Senate suspended Order 79 (1) of the Senate Standing Orders and deemed all the Bills as having passed first, second and third readings on the floor of the Senate and concurred to same before they were passed.
The lawmakers have faced criticisms over poor performance despite taking a huge chunk of the nation’s budget as salaries and allowances.
