Party primaries: the Senate postpones the session until June 7

The Senate has adjourned until June 7 to allow legislators to fully participate in the presidential, National Assembly, Governor’s and State Assembly primaries. The adjournment motion was moved by Senate Leader Yahaya Abdullahi and seconded by Deputy Minority Leader Shuaibu Lau. Senate President Ahmad Lawan, in his remarks, explained that the decision to adjourn the plenary session was to allow legislators to fully participate in the activities and processes leading to the holding of party primaries for various elective positions before the 2023 general election. He said: “The processing of forms for the House of Representatives and the Senate has begun and we are expected to file our completed forms on Friday. “And of course we have some of our colleagues here who are going to serve as governors of their states. “It is very important that we participate in the process that affects us directly, as well as in those that do not affect us directly, that is, the Chambers of the Assembly, the Governor’s Office and the Presidency of the State. “Consequently, we have to adjourn to allow ourselves to fully participate in all these activities because we are supposed to be active participants. So I wish you all the best of luck. “For the presidential candidates, we are four and we pray that one of us comes out as the official candidate.” The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), in a Schedule and Calendar of Activities for the 2023 General Elections published on February 26, instructed the political parties to hold their primaries for the nomination of candidates from April 4 to June 3. .
