Senators held a brief comical session on Tuesday moments before the plenary was adjourned. The lawmakers agreed to adjourn plenary to allow senators of the All Progressives Congress (APC) attend their National Executive Council meeting.
The comedy started when the Majority Leader, Ahmed Lawan, moved the motion for adjournment moments after a point of order was entertained.
Mr. Lawan said, “Mr. President, very distinguished colleagues, today, the All Progressives Congress, the ruling party.”
He was however cut short as members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) drowned his voice with the remark ‘All Progressive Crises.”
“It’s All Progressives’ Crises, not Congress,” they taunted him. It took the presiding officer, Ike Ekweremadu, a member of the PDP, some minutes to calm the chamber from the rounds of laughter that followed the interruption.
