The Senate has announced an increase in its weekly sitting days, with the lawmakers agreeing to hold plenary sessions thrice weekly.

The development followed a Point of Order raised during Wednesday’s plenary by Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe (APGA, Abia South), urging the Red Chamber to resume holding plenary sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays weekly in line with its Rules.

President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, who is presiding over plenary, agreed with the point of order raised by the Abia lawmaker and approved the order.

During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Senate had rescheduled its plenary sessions to just Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Their House of Representatives counterpart, however, continued to hold plenary sessions thrice weekly up until the current Tenth Assembly.
