ABUJA-THE Senate on Tuesday adjourned plenary for lack of quorum to reconvene after the governorship and state assembly elections as well as the Easter break. The Senate will resume plenary on April 14.
 
The Senate had resumed for plenary after about two weeks break for the Presidential and National Assembly elections but on resumption, members that attended the plenary were less than thirteen which made the Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, PDP, Cross River Central to call for adjournment.
 
Meantime, with the results of the National Assembly election that was held last Saturday showed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, now has the majority number with 63, while the Peoples Democratic Party that used to dominate is now in the minority with 46 Senators.
 
Senator Ndoma-Egba said that “I have taken stock of Senators and I doubt if we have formed quorum. I call for adjournment till April 14 for members to participate in the governorship and state assembly elections and for the Easter break.”
 
Speaking before the adjournment, the Senate President, David Mark, who presided over the plenary said, “We are all glued to the TV at the moment, I think it is going to be difficult for us to form a quorum the whole week.
