Written by thereachfm on March 12, 2019
The Senate today suspended plenary in honour of a member of the House of Representatives, Temitope Olatoye, who lost his life during last Saturday’s gubernatorial and House of Assembly polls in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The upper chamber of the National Assembly had resumed plenary with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, when the Senate Leader, Ahmad Lawan, announced the demise of the House member and requested that a minute silence should be observed in honour of the deceased lawmaker.
He further canvassed for the suspension of the day’s plenary in line with the tradition of the National Assembly and as a mark of respect for the late legislator.
