Prior to the 2023 general elections, the Nigerian Senate declared it will take a break.

February 25 is the election’s scheduled date.

President of the Senate Ahmad Lawan announced this on Tuesday during plenary.

He clarified that the break was necessary so that MPs, especially those running for reelection, could plan and take part in campaigning.

In order to avoid having to meet the next week, Lawan stated that the Senate would adjourn this week if it can resolve all urgent matters that need it.

According to Lawan, “We are prepared to sit up to Friday this week to attend to all urgent issues requiring our attention, so we don’t have to sit next week in view of the forthcoming elections.”

After adjourning plenary on December 28, 2022, the senate had just recently resumed after three-week holiday.
Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), stated that the general electionof 2023 is the election of the young people because they are the majority.
Yakubu, the chairman of INEC, made this revelation during a presentation on Tuesday at the Chatham House in London. He noted that out of the 93.4 million registered voters overall, over 70.4 million are young people between the ages of 18 and 49.
In addition, the INEC chairman said that young people also collect the majority of the PVCs.
