Senate fixes May 21 to discuss emergency rule in Borno,Yobe & Adamawa states
- Written by Abdullateef Abubakar Jos
Mark said their presence was imperative for the senate to form a quorum to deliberate on “an important national issue”.
``I would like to appeal to all distinguished colleagues here present and those who are not here, that they should be present on Tuesday, May 21, 2013.''
He said this was necessary “so that we form quorum to deliberate on a sensitive matter that will be before us on that day’’.
Reports say that out of the 109 senators, 54 attended Thursday’s session.
Section 305 of the 1999 Constitution provides that the proclamation of a state of emergency has no effect unless the National Assembly passes a resolution, supported by two third majority of each house.
It adds that the proclamation is to take place within two days when the National Assembly is in session and 10 days when not in session, after the publication in the Official Gazette of the Federal Government.
``A Proclamation issued by the President under this section shall cease to have effect if it affects the Federation or any part thereof and within two days when the National Assembly is in session.''
The Leader of the senate, Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba, said the delay in the debate could not breach the constitution since the proclamation had not been published in the government gazette.
