The upper chamber of the National Assembly has suspended legislative activities for two weeks. This is to allow the Senators to celebrate Eid-el-fitr with their families.
News Hub Mag! reports that Eid-el-fitr is the celebration of the conclusion of 30 days of fasting by Muslims all over the world during the Islamic month of Ramadan.
According to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, since the Senators hold plenary sessions only on Tuesdays the Senate will resume on June 2.
“This will be the last plenary session before Sallah. It is the tradition of the National Assembly to allow members celebrate the end of Ramadan, the Sallah with their families. The senate will adjourn till 2nd of June.”
He hinted at the likelihood of reconvening to consider the reviewed budget as soon as communication is received from the president, adding that the 2020 budget would not be amended or passed until lawmakers obtain copies of the document to enable them study it.
