The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki yesterday saved the request by the executive for virement of N135 billion, from the 2017 budget from being thrown out.
 
When the request for virement came up for consideration at plenary, many of the senators kicked against it describing the request as “unconstitutional”.
 
However, the president of the senate pleaded with his colleagues and eventually succeeded in getting the request to be referred to the committee on appropriation.
