BREAKING: Senate postpones resumption till April 23rd [REASONS]

The Nigerian Senate has announced a postponement of its scheduled resumption from the ongoing Easter and Sallah break, moving the date from Tuesday, April 16, 2024, to Tuesday, April 23, 2024.

This decision was communicated to senators through a brief message from the Clerk to the Senate, Chinedu Akubueze, citing “unforeseen circumstances” as the reason for the delay.

This announcement follows a similar decision by the House of Representatives, which also delayed its resumption to April 23.

The House cited ongoing renovations to the main chambers as the cause for their postponement, ensuring that the facilities are in optimal condition for lawmakers’ return. The Clerk to the House of Representatives, Yahaya Danzaria, indicated that the extension is meant to prepare the premises adequately for legislative activities.

The Senate’s postponement, as outlined in a message entitled “For the information of Distinguished Senators,” seeks to address issues that were not anticipated, although specific details of these circumstances were not disclosed. The message expressed regret for any inconvenience this change might cause to the senators’ schedules and plans.

Both legislative bodies are currently on a break for the Easter and Sallah holidays, a common practice to allow members to observe these significant religious periods.
