BREAKING: Akpabio Seeks Support As Senate Resumes Plenary, Moves Into Executive Session

  • Akpabio emphasized the shared goal of working for the welfare of constituents and the country, urging lawmakers to cooperate with his leadership despite differing opinions

    After a six-week break, the Senate reconvened on Tuesday and broke into a closed session to discuss national-level matters.

    The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, had earlier urged all disgruntled lawmakers to put down their swords and work with him.

    According to Akpabio, only through unity could the nation make the advances it so richly deserved at the time.

    Top of the agenda of the plenary session is the confirmation of the nomination of Mr. Olayemi Cardoso for appointment as Central Bank of Nigeria.

    The red chamber also planned to screen and confirm, at the committee of the whole, the appointment of four new deputy governors; namely Emem Nnana Usoro, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Dattijo, Philip Ikeazor and Bala M. Bello.
