Abuja, Jan. 17, 2023 – The Senate will adjourn plenary next week to allow lawmakers to have time for campaigns for the forthcoming elections.

The senate had just resumed plenary from a three-week break from after December 28, 2022.

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, announced this on Tuesday.

He said that the break would enable lawmakers contesting for various offices during the general elections to carry out necessary campaigns in their various constituencies.

He, however, hinted that the Senate might suspend activities this week if it could deal with urgent issues requiring its attention so it would not have to sit next week.

“We are prepared to sit up to Friday this week to attend to all urgent issues requiring our attention, so we don’t have to sit next week in view of the forthcoming elections,” Lawan said. (GBN)
