APC and PDP lawmakers have been said to have been exchanging words causing a rowdy plenary session at the floor of the Nigerian Senate today.

This arise as senators from both party disagreed over Federal Government’s Social Intervention Programme.

According to PUNCH, the fracas started when the Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujimi alleged that the programme which was introduced by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is ‘biased’.

Biodun Olujimi, a female senator, representing Ekiti South Constituency alleged that beneficiaries of the programme were being asked to provide details of their Permanent Voter Card in the application form.

Presenting a copy of the form, Senator Biodun alleged that ‘I Stand with Buhari’ was written on it, and before the Majority Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan, who defended the Buhari-led administration and the programme could speak, the chamber had become noisy.
