A new resumption date has been announced for the two chambers of the National Assembly.
The parliament, which was earlier slated to resume on Tuesday, September 25, following the ongoing two-month annual recess, will now resume on October 9.
The postponement was contained in a statement by the National Assembly clerk, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, addressed to the lawmakers.
It is understood that the decision followed a meeting by the leadership of the National Assembly on Sunday night.
“This is to inform all Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members that resumption of plenary session earlier scheduled for Tuesday, 25th September has been postponed to Tuesday 9th October due to the activities of the primaries of the political parties.
“All Distinguished Senators and Honourable members are expected to resume plenary session by 10 am on the 9th of October, please,” the statement reads.
