Despite the battle to contain the spread of coronavirus, the house of representatives has scheduled the resumption of its plenary for Tuesday.
Currently, out of the 1274 coronavirus cases in the country, 40 persons have died and 239 persons recovered.
The plenary had been suspended by the lower legislative chamber since March 24, when the country had only 44 cases of COVID-19
However, in a notice yesterday, Patrick Giwa, clerk of the green chamber, asked members to take note of the resumption date.
“This is to inform all Members of the House of Representatives that the House will now resume plenary session on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, at 10.am,” he said.
“Members are advised to take note of the new date of resumption, please.
“The Covid-19 Guidelines approved by the Federal Government and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and additional Guidelines developed by the House will be sent to Members’ pigeon holes for collection on resumption.
“Staff and Members’ Aides are to work from home and will be notified when needed in the office for any special assignment.”
