The Senate has adjourned plenary to Tuesday, July 2, 2019, so as to allow for allocation of seats and offices to Senators.

This followed a motion moved by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, and seconded by Senator Philip Aduda after an-hour closed-door session during Thursday plenary.

Meanwhile, the Senate has set up a 12-man Ad hoc Committee headed by Senator Abu Kyari of Borno North Senatorial District, saddled with the task of liaising with the management of the National Assembly over the welfare of senators.

The committee, which has members drawn from the six geo-political zones as announced by the Senate President Ahmad Lawan, has two weeks to submit its report and will work with the Clerk of the Senate, Nelson Ayewoh, towards ensuring that seats and offices are allocated to all the senators within the time frame.
