The Senate has shifted its resumption from Tuesday next week to July 28 to enable the peace committee set up by the Governors Forum on Senate leadership crisis to submit its report.
Our correspondent gathered that the Adams Oshiomhole-led committee had not been able to interact well with the warring factions since it was set up about three weeks ago.
A senator who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that it would be counterproductive for the senators to resume without resolving the crisis rocking the chamber.
“The leadership of the Senate agreed to shift resumption of plenary by an additional week because of the need to resolve the crisis in the upper chamber over the appointment of principal officers.
“Another reason is the fact that the senators would have an opportunity to rest after the Ramadan fasting, especially when President Muhammadu Buhari would not be in the country for a better part of next week.
“We believe that it is better for President Buhari to be in the country when the red chamber will reopen for plenary so that the letter for the appointment of Service Chiefs could be communicated to the senate for consideration.”
However, a statement signed by the Acting Clerk to the Senate, Adedotun Durojaiye, on Friday merely announced the postponement of plenary till July 28 without giving reasons for the action.
