No Current at Senate Prompts Abrupt Adjournment


In the wake of a sweltering condition in the Senate Chamber of the Capitol Building due to lack of electricity, the Senate yesterday abruptly adjourned session after barely forty-five minutes.

From a loaded two-page agenda, the Senate presided over firstly by Protempore Albert Tugbe Chie and Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, the only two items handled were the 4G induction of re-elected Sinoe County Senator Augustine Chea, who was last weekend certificated by the National Elections Commission; and the reading of a communication from Senator H. Varney G Sherman, calling the attention of the Senate to inchoate problems associated with the 2023 Presidential and Legislative Elections.

The appearance of the Minister of Health, and Minister of Education were sent to next Tuesday sitting.

The situation was so bad that Senators attired in coat suits were noticed uncomfortably sweating and at the same time taking off their coats.Meanwhile, there are speculations that Health Minister Wilhelmina Jallah is expected to brief the Senate on issues relating to the COVID-19, and the likelihood to invite them to take advantage of the availability of few COVID vaccines to get their jab.
