National Assembly

Barring last minute changes, Senators and House of Representatives members are set to proceed on another recess that will last for six weeks.

The recess will last till September this year.

The recess would be announced at the end of plenary by both Chambers on Thursday.

The lawmakers, following the controversies that enveloped the elections at both Red and Green Chambers, went on recess on June 10th and resumed on 23rd.

On the 25th of June, they went for another recess and were supposed to  resume on July 21st, only to  add another one week,  thus they resumed on 28 of July.

The legislators have so far sat for 11 days in two months. By Thursday when they would be proceeding on the recess, the legislators would have sat for 14 days including on the June when they resumed.

Speaking to our correspondent, a Senator described the forthcoming recess as normal.
“It is normal for us to go on six weeks recess or so. This one is not like the previous recesses, this one is legal, “the ranking Senator said.

Also speaking,  one of the clerks at the National Assembly confirmed the upcoming recess describing it as annual recess.

“This is annual recess,  it will last for six weeks or more. It is not abnormal but meet the Senate committee on rules and business to tell you the exact, “ he said.

Efforts to get the Chairman of the Senate adhoc committee on publicity, Dino Melaye, speak on this yielded no result as he was not picking his calls.

Also, the Chairman of House of Representatives adhoc committee on media, Sani Zorro was not reachable when he was contacted for reaction.
