Senate resumes, adjourns plenary to mourn member


The Senate resumed on Tuesday after a three-week recess.
The lawmakers held plenary for a brief period and then adjourned their sitting to Wednesday after about eight minutes.
The adjournment followed a motion by the Senate Leader, Abdullahi Yahaya, who formally announced the death of the Lagos senator, Bayo Osinowo, who died on June 15.
He prayed his colleagues observe a minute silence and postpone plenary and other legislative activities in honour of the late senator in accordance with the Senate rule.
His motion was seconded by the Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe.
Mr Osinowo who represented Lagos-East Senatorial district died in a Lagos isolation centre after battling with complications arising from COVID-19. He was 64.
