The Senate was on Wednesday split over the reordered sequence of the 2019 General Elections.
The reordered sequence puts the presidential election last.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had before now put the presidential election first.
On Wednesday, the report on the election sequence was submitted for consideration of the Senate by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on INEC, Senator Suleiman Nazif.
After the presentation of the report, the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, did not allow senators to make contributions to the amendment, a development that led to series of points of orders on the floor of the Senate.
Senators such as Kabiru Gaya, Abdulahi Adamu and Adamu Ailero raised points of orders on the passage of the bill.
But Saraki ruled the lawmakers out of order.
This led to some lawmakers staging a walkout.
Fifty-nine of them were to later address the Senate Press Corps, insisting on their opposition to the reordering of the elections.
