The Chief Whip of the Senate, Professor Olusola Adeyeye, has confirmed that the Senate Standing Rules have been altered.
Professor Adeyeye told Channels Television on Sunday that the court would have to determine whether it was forged or not.
“In the 7th Assembly, voting has to be done publicly (but) in this current one, it was done privately”.
The Senate Chief Whip regretted the current situation in the upper house, saying that the lawmakers have not shown maturity in handling the situation.
“Our own rules in the Senate forbid us from discussing matters in the court.
“Those who support our Senate President (Dr. Bukola Saraki) should have given him all the support he needs so as to provide for himself, the best defence in the court of Nigeria,” he said.
