Senate Re-opens, Holds Closed Door Meeting

by on November 26, 2014

The Senate on Tuesday re-opened after the commotion that rocked the National Assembly last week.

The first assignment of members today was a meeting with Service Chiefs and the Director General of the Department of State Security, (DSS).

The meeting, which took place behind closed doors, discussed the extension of the emergency rule in the three northeast states.

President Goodluck Jonathan had written to the House of Assembly requesting an extension of the emergency situation following continued violence in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.

The Service Chiefs who appeared could not attend last week’s session because of the rowdy situation at the National Assembly while members of the House of Representative forced themselves into the complex, having been locked out.
