“This is to inform all Distinguished Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that the resumption of the Senate in Plenary has been rescheduled from Tuesday 14th March 2023 to Tuesday 21st March 2023,” the terse statement read.

Similarly, the Clerk of the House of Representatives, Dr. Yahaya Danzaria, told the lawmakers that the change in resumption date is to enable them to partake in the polls.
