The Senate Tuesday adjourned sitting to November 20 following its inability to form a quorum.
Only 20 senators were present whereas 38 is the number required to form a quorum
The adjournment came following an adopted motion sponsored by Senator Phillip Aduda representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Adudua said: “Mr. President and my most respected colleagues, we have not formed the required number approved for the sitting to hold. The approved number of quorum is 38 but we are less than the requisite number. And, therefore, I most responsibly move a motion that the sitting be adjourned to November 20 to enable our colleagues to complete their oversight functions”.
Firming up its resolution, Senate President, Bukola Saraki explained that the lack of quorum was for the oversight functions which a greater majority of members were involved and, therefore, said the adjournment would afford the red chamber the opportunity to conclude their various oversight engagements.
