Buhari writes Senate on Hajj Commission appointments


President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate on the appointment of Chairman and members of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria. The President of the Senate, Senator Ahmed Lawan, read the letter to lawmakers present at Tuesday’s plenary in the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja.

This came shortly after he led the principal officers into the chambers after which the day’s proceedings began at about 10:45 am. Senator Yahaya Oloriegbe had moved for the approval of votes and proceedings of Thursday last week while Senator Micheal Nnachi seconded.

Meanwhile, the Senate Leader Senator Yahaya Abdullahi cited Order 43 and informed the lawmakers on the death of a member of the House of Representatives, Jaafar Auna. The Senate, thereafter, resolved to observe a minute silence and suspend all items on the order paper until another legislative day in honour of the lawmaker.

Plenary was then adjourned until Wednesday.
