Senate Adjourns Plenary Over Inability To Form A Quorum

The Senate President Bukola Saraki  adjourned the Plenary on Tuesday over the absence of some lawmakers at the chambers.

The senate president said that the adjournment was due to few lawmakers in the Senate Chamber.

According to reports, less than 20 out of 109 Senators are participating in the legislative proceedings and the number is not enough to form a quorum, it added that some lawmakers are on oversight functions.

However, the absence of lawmakers may not be unconnected with preparations for the 2019 general elections as some of the Senators are fighting for re-election into the Senate.

This is the second time in less than one month where the Senate is adjourning Plenary for lawmakers to perform their oversight function on MDA’s.

The Upper Chamber has therefore adjourned plenary till November 20, 2018.
