The Senate on Wednesday adjourned plenary till Thursday to honour the late member of the House of Representatives representing Ibeju-Lekki Federal Constituency of Lagos State, Mr. Abayomi Ayeola, who died on December 30, 2018 aged 60.
The federal lawmakers had adjourned plenary on December 20, 2018 to enable them to participate in the yuletide and new year celebrations.
Before the adjournment, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, read a letter from President Muhammadu Buhari, seeking confirmation for the appointment of an 11-member management team for the North East Development Commission.
