The Senate on Tuesday adjourned for two weeks in view of the upcoming Islamic celebration, Id-el-Kabir.

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, thanked the lawmakers for their cooperation in the past week and wished the Muslims a happy celebration, as well as safe journey to those travelling home for the celebration.

Meanwhile, before the adjournment, the senate confirmed the appointment of Mukhtar Usman as the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA.

Mr. Usman was appointed by President Goodluck Jonathan six months after the sack of Fola Akinkuotu. The request for his confirmation was sent to the Senate President, David Mark.

Committee reports on the National Social Welfare, the discriminations against persons with disabilities and the Cyber Crime bills were also considered.
