The House of Representatives would resume plenary on Tuesday, September 26, from its two-month annual recess, the spokesman of the House, Akin Rotimi has said.
In a statement in Abuja, Rotimi said the notice of resumption from the annual recess which started on July 27 was conveyed to members by the Clerk to the House, Yahaya Danzaria.
The House spokesman said that the 10th Assembly has been very prolific, adding that in about 100 days since the inauguration, it has passed about 470 bills for first reading, while four of them have passed second reading.
He said further that about 175 motions on notice have so far been considered by the House.
According to him, despite the recess, the green chamber continued to function, as various ad-hoc committees continued to carry out their crucial mandates which have generated significant positive public interest.
He added that members also continued to carry out various constituency outreaches across the country.
He said: “Some of the key early developments expected on resumption is the conclusion of the work of all ad-hoc committees and the submission of their reports for the consideration of the House, in line with the directive of the Rt. Honourable Speaker.
“It is also expected that the final draft of the Legislative Agenda developed by the ad-hoc committee led by House Leader, Hon. Prof. Julius Inhonvbere will be considered and adopted by the House. The draft agenda was developed following extensive consultations with critical stakeholders.
“In the same vein, soon after the resumption, it is anticipated that the membership of the standing committees would be announced and fully constituted.”
