The House of Representatives, again, postponed its resumption of plenary from Tuesday, April 23, to Tuesday, April 30.

This is the House’s second time rescheduling its resumption from the Easter and Sallah break.

The House was initially slated to resume plenary on Tuesday, April 16, but was shifted to April 23 to allow for completion of renovation work on the main chambers of the House.

Clerk to the House, Dr. Yahaya Danzaria, however, said in an internal memo to the lawmakers that the new changes are aimed at giving members more time for constituency outreach to secure adequate input in the constitution review process.

Akintunde Rotimi, the spokesman of the House, quoted the Clerk as saying that the extension follows the earlier decision by the House Committee on Constitution Review to extend the deadline for submission of memoranda to April 30, 2024.

He said: “Additionally, the extended timeline will allow for more concerted preparation for the legislative summits on State Police, as well as the one on Tax Reforms, Revenue Enhancement, and Digital Transformation coming up in the next two weeks.

“All inconveniences arising from this rescheduling are regretted. In line with the Legislative Agenda of the 10th Assembly, the House remains committed to being accountable and providing timely communications to all stakeholders”.
