The Senate on Thursday adjourned plenary for one week to allow the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators to take part in their party congresses. Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume, moved the motion that the business of the day as listed in the Order Paper be suspended following the absence of most PDP Senators in the chamber.
Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, Deputy Minority Leader, who seconded the motion, however bemoaned what he termed wrong reportage of the press conference by Northern Senators’ Forum on herdsmen/farmers clashes on Wednesday. Senator Bwacha noted that what was reported was not the position of the forum that murderers masquerading as herdsmen should be spared.
According to him, what the forum decided was that people should be mindful of what they say in order not to further inflame passion in the country.
