    The Senate, on Tuesday, upon resumption from its two weeks recess, adjourned plenary till Wednesday over the recent death of two members of the National Assembly.

    The upper chamber also held a minute silence in honour of both lawmakers who are members of the House of Representatives.

    “The second loss we suffered, was that of another Honourable member, Hon. Suleiman Aliyu Lere, representing Lere Federal Constituency from Kaduna State, whom we also lost on 6th April , 2021.”

    Abdullahi added, “Mr. President, Distinguished Colleagues, I rise in accordance with our tradition, to move a two motions: one for the suspension on all other items scheduled for consideration on the order paper today; [And] also another motion for this Distinguished chamber to observe one minute silence in honour of the departed, I so move.”

    The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, while putting the motion to a voice vote which was unanimously supported by Senators, described the demise of the two lawmakers as “another sad development in the National Assembly”.

    The upper chamber, thereafter, held a minute silence in honour of the deceased lawmakers before adjourning plenary till tomorrow.
