Senate President Ahmad Lawan has appointed Smart Adeyemi, senator representing Kogi west, as the chairman of the aviation committee.

Lawan made the announcement on the floor of the upper legislative chamber at a special plenary session on Friday.

It suspended legislative duties on Thursday in honour of the late Benjamin Uwajumogu, senator representing Imo north, who died on Wednesday.

The senate adjourned till January 28, 2020.

Dino Melaye, a former senator, was the chairman of the aviation committee until the rerun election in Kogi west which he lost.

He polled 88,373 votes to defeat Melaye who secured 62,133 votes.

On December 4, Adeyemi was sworn in as senator representing Kogi west senatorial district.
