Lack of quorum compels Senate to adjourn plenary
NEWS DIGEST–Only nine Senators including Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, Senators Abu Ibrahim, Olusola Adeyeye, Philip Aduda and Andrew Uchendu attended the session that lasted barely 30 minutes.
Lawan, relying on standing rule of the Senate, moved that the Senate should adjourn till March 12, 2019.
He blamed the lack of quorum on the ongoing elections saying that it is obvious that most of their colleagues have not had their results.
Senate Minority Whip, Senator Philip Aduda, seconded the motion for adjournment.
