The Buhari Parliamentary Support Group (PSG) has been gaining more lawmakers as members at the National Assembly despite a ban by Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
According to Daily Trust, lawmakers who do not support the views of the joint executive session of the Senate and the House of Representatives, have opted for PSG.
The group emerged following the passage of a bill in February that sought to change elections sequence in Nigeria so that the National Assembly elections would come first while presidential election would be the last.
Senators such as Abdullahi Adamu, Ovie Omo-Agege and a host of others rejected the passage of the bill by the Senate and thereafter formed the PSG.
Sen. Omo-Agege specifically said the elections sequence change was targeted at President Buhari. a statement that earned him a 90-days suspension. A court has since voided that.
The Senate equally banned the PSG, saying it would not tolerate the existence of any such group.
On why the group was banned, Saraki one said that the group lacked sincerity adding that based on actions and inaction, he (Saraki) was the right person to chair such a group in the National Assembly.
