The Senate resumed plenary on Tuesday but adjourned over its inability to form a quorum.

Todays’s meeting is its first since the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Resumption had earlier been shifted from February 19 to February 26 as a result of the change in the date of the elections.

Upon resumption today, the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, moved that the Senate adjourn as those present were not up to the number of senators required to form a quorum.

He explained that while some lawmakers are out of town and are yet to get the results of the elections of their senatorial districts, others are busy making sure the election process goes smoothly.

He thereafter, moved that the lawmakers adjourn till March 12 – after the Governorship and House of Assembly elections.

The motion to adjourn was seconded by FCT senator, Philip Aduda and was unanimously adopted through a voice vote.

There were about eight senators present in the chamber including the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who presided over the session.

Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, Olusola Adeyeye and Andrew Uchendu were also present.
