Abuja - The Senate has adjourned to honour the late Senator, Ahmed Zannah, who died last weekend.

The adjournment followed a motion Senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, moved, requesting the House adjourned until Wednesday in honour of the legislators’ late colleague.

“I move that the Senate do adjourn till Wednesday in line with our tradition to hounour our departed colleague Senator Ahmed Zana representing Borno Central” Ndoma-Egba said.

The Senate also observed a minute of silence for the late Senator.

Before putting the motion to voting Senate President, David Mark, reminded the senators that in keeping with their tradition the Senate could sit on Tuesday.

“In keeping with our tradition, we cannot sit today,” Mark said.

He added that the Senate would hold a valedictory session on Wednesday for late Senator Uche Chukwumerije who died last month at the Turkish Hospital in Abuja at the age of 75 and Zana.

Zannah died in Abuja last Saturday at the age of 60 after years of battle with a terminal disease.
