National Assembly Postpones Resumption From recess by Two Weeks

The National Assembly management on Friday extended the annual vacation of the federal lawmakers by two weeks.

The Senators and members of the House of Representatives who were initially expected to resume from their annual vacation on September 15 are now expected to resume plenary on September 29.

The Clerk to the National Assembly, Mr. Amos Olatunde, who announced this in a statement, did not give reasons for the extension of the parliament’s vacation.

He, however, regretted any inconvenience caused by the action.

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives had on July 23, 2020 adjourned plenary to enable their members observe the mandatory two months vacation.

The presiding officers of the two chambers had said that the National Assembly will reconvene on Tuesday, September 15 for legislative duties.
