The Nigerian Senate, had passed a bill for the establishment of a federal polytechnic in Abia state. The decision was followed by the presentation of a report by Senator Jibrin Barau, APC, Kano North-led Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND.

According to Vanguard News, there was however a mild drama prior to the presentation of the report when some senators, jokingly exchanged banters over ‘Jubril’, an alleged impostor of President Muhammad Buhari, President of Nigeria.

However, during the presentation of the report and for the fact that Senator Jubrin Barau was not present during plenary, the Senate Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan mandated the former chairman of the committee, Senator Binta Garba to present the report on behalf of Jubrin.

In seconding the motion to consider the report, Senator Shehu Sani, PRP, Kaduna Central volunteered to it.
“I stand to second the motion being moved by Jubrin…Binta Masi Garba,” Senator Sani stated.
