The Senate today resolved to immortalise name some facilities of the National Assembly after former presiding officers.
This followed the adoption of the report of the Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Immortalisation of Senators. This, according to Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, will encourage the present and future lawmakers to be dedicated to their duties.
The recommendations of the committee, as contained in the report presented by its chairman, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, includes the naming of four Public Hearing
Rooms at the Senate White House after former Senate presidents as well as the naming of the Senate New Wing after a former presiding officer. The committee also recommended that some committee rooms be named after senators who died in active service, while the zones of the Apo Legislative Quarters be named after presiding officers of the National Assembly.
It also recommended that the roads, streets and recreational parks and gardens in Apo Legislative Quarters be named after principal officers and outstanding legislators whose contributions had shaped the direction of debates in the Senate.
