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.
The incident forced the Senate president, David Mark, to shut down the National Assembly until today.
