Eyinnanya in a statement released on Monday described the reports as false.
According to him, senators operating as a body of one united family, have never at any time found any ground to move against its leadership or even thwart the long-standing camaraderie the Upper Chamber is known for, irrespective of political party affiliation.
He added that the Senate has a tested internal mechanism, which has severally been ably deployed by the President of the Senate and members of his leadership to tackle any difficult issues that arise within and outside the chamber.
Such mechanisms and channels, Abaribe said, are inexhaustible and shall always be deployed by the leadership of the Senate, as it always does when the need arises.
