SENATE REPS TO RESUME PLENARY TODAY

Written by on April 28, 2020

THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY WILL TODAY RESUME PLENARY AFTER ABOUT FIVE WEEKS OF BREAK AS A RESULT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

IT COULD BE RECALLED THAT THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAD IN MARCH SUSPENDED PLENARY FOR TWO WEEKS IN A BID TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS DISEASE, HOWEVER, BOTH LATER EXTENDED THEIR BREAK IN CONFORMITY WITH THE LOCKDOWN OF THE FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY (FCT), LAGOS AND OGUN STATES AS DIRECTED BY PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI ON MARCH 29TH.

IT IS HOWEVER NOT CLEAR THE NUMBER OF DAYS THE TWO CHAMBERS WILL SIT.

ACCORDING TO REPORTS, THE LAWMAKERS ON RESUMPTION WILL CONSIDER PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI’S REQUEST FOR THE DOWNWARD REVIEW OF THE 10.5 TRILLION NAIRA 2020 BUDGET IN VIEW OF THE HIGH FALL IN THE PRICE OF CRUDE OIL AT THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET.
