Breaking! #EndSARS: Senate Holds Emergency Private Session

The Senate is currently holding an emergency private session to appraise the current #EndSARS protests rocking various parts of the country.

No sooner had the senators resumed for the day’s plenary around 10:55 am on Tuesday, than the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, called for an emergency session.

Apart from the issue of #EndSARS protests which the senators are discussing, it was gathered that the issue of the confirmation of Aisha Dahir-Umar, as the substantive Director General of the National Pension Commission will be deliberated.

The Committee on Establishment and Public Service led by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, had last Thursday, screened and cleared Dahir-Umar and other nominees for the board of PenCom.

Aggrieved senators who are spearheading the campaign against the confirmation of Dahir-Umar, are said to be poised for a showdown at today's plenary, which obviously necessitated part of the reasons for the private session.
