Senate Confirms Being in Receipt of Buhari’s Vacation Letter

The Senate yesterday said it had received President Muhammadu Buhari’s letter announcing the extension of his vacation beyond February 7.

Answering questions from journalists in the National Assembly tuesday, Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, Senator Sabi Abdullahi, said he didn’t know the date indicated in the letter neither did he know the day that the letter was received.

Responding to a question on whether National Assembly’s failure to reconvene for plenary so that the letter can be read on the floor of the Senate does not invalid the letter,  Abdullahi said the parliament was not obliged to reconvene because it is not an emergency matter.
