The National Assembly has adjourned plenary to September 16, to enable the lawmakers proceed on long annual vacation.

In the upper chambers, Senate leader, Victor Ndoma Egba, announced this yesterday, but said committee works would continue to enable the various committees to tidy up their work.

However, before the adjournment, the Senate considered and passed the conference committee report on Repeal and Re-Enactment of the Prisons Bill, by its Committee on Interior.

The Senate also received the report of its Committees on National Security and Intelligence, Defence and Army, Police Affairs and Interior, on fact-finding on the recent attacks and killings in Benue, Nasarawa, Plateau, Katsina, Zamfara, and Kaduna states.

The Senate also approved the Presidential nomination of three persons: Aliyu Mohammed, Dahiru Hassan Balami, Stanley Lawson.

Aliyu Mohammed was screened and approved for appointment as a member of the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).

Dahiru Hassan Balami was screened and approved for appointment as a member of the Central Bank of Nigeria Monetary Policy (CBNMP), while Stanley Lawson was screened and approved for appointment as non-executive member of the CBN Board.
