The Nigerian Senate would after six weeks of recess, resume sitting on Tuesday, Sept. 29, as they will be expecting communication from President Buhari on ministerial nominees.
This was issued in a statement on Monday in Abuja via the Chairman, Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Media and Publicity, Dino Melaye.
He dismissed rumours of a likely postponement of the resumption as he added that the Senate will commence legislative activities and thus set to welcome communication from President Muhammadu Buhari on ministerial nominees.
“The speculation making rounds that legislative activities by the Upper Chamber will be shifted is not true and as we resumes, we expect communication from President Buhari on ministerial nominees.”
“There will be no “stormy session” in the Senate on resumption as being peddled by a section of the media since both the leadership of the upper chamber and all Senators are at peace among themselves and are focused on working for the betterment of the country at all times,” the statement said.
Melaye continued: “I want to confirm that the Senate will resume tomorrow (Tuesday) and that we are set to carry out all our legislative responsibilities.
“I also want to use this opportunity to announce the resolve of the Senate, to do only those things that will promote the unity, prosperity and wellbeing of the Nigerian people.”
The Senate spokesperson also stated that the present challenges confronting the red chamber would be surmounted.
