National Assembly Resumes After Six Week Break

The National Assembly will Tuesday resume plenary after a six week break to mark the Christmas and New year celebrations.

The earlier date of January 26 slated for resumption of both chambers was shifted to February 9 to allow members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) partake in the ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise of the party.

It is expected that the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, would at plenary today, read out letters written by President Muhammadu Buhari to the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly.

Among the President’s letters to the Senate is the request for the Red Chamber to confirm the Ambassadorial nomination of ex-Service Chiefs.

Though the Senate might not conduct its usual legislative activities today, the Senate President is however expected to bring to plenary issues on its legislative agenda like the Farmers-Herders clashes, even as the Green and Red Chambers are expected to adjourn sitting to tomorrow in honour of a deceased member, Honourable Ossy Prestige representing Aba North/South federal constituency of Abia State.
