The lawmakers took the decision on Wednesday after a closed door session, which lasted about two hours.


Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who announced this after the secret meeting with his colleagues, also said that the Senate will stand by its President, Bukola Saraki, who is presently standing trial before the Justice Danladi Umar-led CCT.

Members of the upper chamber of the National Assembly recently kicked off debate on the bill seeking the amendment of the law establishing the CCB and CCT.
