Senate adjourns sitting for lack of quorum


For failing to form a quorum, the Senate has adjourned sitting till November 20. The members were less than 20 at plenary yesterday.

The resolution followed a motion sponsored by the lawmaker representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Phillip Aduda.

He had noted: “Mr. president and my most respected colleagues, we have not formed the required number approved for the sitting to hold. The quorum is 38 but we are here less than the requisite number. Therefore, I must responsibly move a motion that the sitting be adjourned to November 20 to enable our colleagues complete their oversight functions.”

Speaking, Senate President Bukola Saraki affirmed the stance of the motion sponsor, adding that the committees would have completed their assignments before the adjourned date.
