A letter from President Muhammadu Buhari which was read during the Senate’s plenary on Wednesday, June 6, led to mild drama in the red chamber.
The letter on an executive bill, which was read out by Senate president Bukola Saraki evoked laughter from senators because of the mention of “transmission” in its title, Punch reports.
It was titled, Transmission of the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts Amendment Bill 2018.
Upon reading the title, the Senate president also burst into laughter, before saying, “let me start again.”
The president’s letter read: “I forward herewith a draft Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts Amendment Bill 2018 for the kind consideration and passage by the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, while hoping that the bill will receive the usual expeditious consideration and passage by the distinguished Senate.”
It was previously reported that a video of the inspector-general of Police, Ibrahim Idris, purportedly struggling to read, surfaced online.
The incident reportedly occurred on Monday, May 14, when the Police chief visited Kano to commission the Police Technical Intelligence Unit in the state.
Idris was reportedly caught on video stuttering to pronounce ‘transmission’ and kept repeating it.
