The Nigerian Senate has cancelled the resumption of plenary scheduled for Tuesday, January 29, 2019.
This was contained in a letter signed by Nelson Ayewoh, Clerk of the Senate, and issued on Monday.
The letter, however, noted that the scheduled date of resumption fixed for February 19, 2019, still stands.
The letter read: “This is to inform all Distinguished Senators of the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that the resumption in plenary scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, 29th January, 2019, has been cancelled.
“The scheduled date of resumption in plenary earlier fixed for Tuesday, 19th February, 2019, remains, please.”
The upper chamber initially wanted to convene an emergency sitting to discuss the suspension of Walter Onnoghen as Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) by President Muhammadu Buhari.
