Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday urged senators to attend Wednesday’s valedictory session in honour of the late Isiaka Adeleke.
Saraki made the call shortly before the upper chamber adjourned plenary in honour of the former Osun State governor.
The mood in the chamber was indicative of the loss of a man at peace with all senators.
Saraki was clad in a deep blue caftan apparently to depict the mood of the day.
Senate Leader, Senator Ahmed Lawan, had formerly announced the death of Adeleke.
Lawan, who came under Order 43 (Personal Explanation), said it was with heavy heart that he announced the death of Adeleke.
He prayed the Senate, in line with “convention and practice of the National Assembly” to adjourn plenary in honour of the deceased.
He also asked the Senate to observe one minute silence as a mark of respect for their departed colleague.
Lawan said a session of tribute would be held on Wednesday to honour Adeleke.
