In the motion which was sponsored by 81 senators from both the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, Anyanwu noted with dismay, that the harassment of his colleagues by the police was inappropriate.

He also expressed the determination of the leadership of the Senate to continue to perform its constitutional duties and responsibilities without fear or favour.
Anyanwu further expressed the determination of the red chamber to focus on matters of interest and importance to the ordinary people of Nigeria in view of the enormous challenges facing the nation.
He said, “Considering the sustained interference in the internal affairs of the Senate by detractors and media propaganda against the Senate and senators by selfish politicians. The senate hereby resolved to pass a vote of confidence in the President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki; the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; the entire senate leadership as presently constituted.
Meanwhile, the Senate President on Tuesday read on the floor of the Senate a letter by President Muhammadu Buhari seeking the confirmation of the appointments of the country’s new service chiefs.
