A heated battle may be on the horizon among lawmakers as the National Assembly is set to reconvene on Tuesday.

There are strong indications that the APC senators and their PDP counterparts are heading for a showdown as the National Assembly is set to reconvene on Tuesday.

Reporters gathered on Friday that the issue bordered on what should be discussed at the plenary on Tuesday.

It was learnt that senators, who are loyal to the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, were insisting that the only agenda should be considered is President Muhammadu Buhari’s budget for the 2019 elections.

The anti-Saraki lawmakers however, have said nothing was sacrosanct, adding that they could also raise the issue of the leadership of the senate.

Following the move of the Senate President and 13 other senators from the APC to the PDP, the ruling party had called on Saraki to resign.

But the Senate President on Wednesday said he would only resign if two-thirds of senators passed a vote of no confidence in him.

A pro-Saraki senator, who confided in news outlets, said, “On Tuesday our focus will be INEC budget. Those who think we will debate majority and leadership issues are wasting their time.”

But another senator, who is  anti-Saraki, said, “No issue is sacrosanct. Saraki’s issue will come up on Tuesday.”
