The Senate on Thursday suspended order 13 on its Standing Orders to enable it sit on Friday to conclude its legislative business before adjourning for the Christmas and New Year break.
This followed a motion by the Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi, who drew the attention of the Senate to the death of Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, on Wednesday.
Late Senator Uwajumogu represented Imo North Senatorial District until he passed on.
The Senate observed a minute silence in honour of their departed colleague and thereafter suspended all businesses listed on its order paper.
Order 13 (2) of the Senate Standing Orders 2015 as amended, reads: “On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the Senate shall meet at 10.00 am and unless previously adjourned shall sit until 2.00 pm…”
