The National Assembly has postponed its resumption till Tuesday, February 9, 2020.
Both Chambers had on December 21st, 2020 adjourned plenary till January 26, 2021, to enable members to observe the Christmas and New Year festivities.
However, the Clerk to the National Assembly, Arc. Ojo Amos in a statement in Abuja disclosed that the lawmakers will not resume on January 26th as earlier stated.
He said the deferment of resumption was to enable lawmakers, who are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to partake in the party’s membership registration and revalidation exercise scheduled to begin on Monday 25th January 2021.
The notice reads, ”This is to inform all distinguished senators and honourable members of the National Assembly that the resumption of plenary sessions earlier scheduled for Tuesday, 26the January, 2021 is hereby rescheduled for Tuesday 9th February, 2021.
”This postponement is to enable members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) party participate in the registration and revalidation of its membership, scheduled to commence on Monday, 25th January, 2021. All inconveniences caused by this change of date are regretted.”
