The Senate has suspended its plenary activities till April 10.
Ike Ekweremadu, the Deputy Senate President, made the announcement on Thursday, just after the Deputy Majority Leader, Bala Na’Allah (APC, Kebbi South) moved that the Senate adjourn for the day.
The suspension action is because of the Easter celebrations for which the federal government already declared Friday and next Monday public holidays.
Ekweremadu while wishing his colleagues a happy holiday admonished his colleagues not to relent in praying for the nation.
“This is an opportunity for me to wish all of you and everyone a happy Easter and please let’s use the remaining period of the Lent to pray for our country for God to intervene in our lives and ensure that all these killings will stop and our economy would pick up and we continue to leave in unity and there would be progress all round.
“We believe that God would hear our prayers this period and wish everyone a happy Easter and look forward to seeing you again on the 10th of April,” he said.
