Heavy Security in National Assembly as Lawmakers meet

Lawan Hamidu, Abuja


The National Assembly complex is relatively calm amidst heavy security presence at the gate.

This followed a meeting scheduled to hold today, Tuesday by the leadership of the National Assembly on some number of key issues.

Though Lawmakers are not allowed to drive into the complex, however they parked their cars from a distance and trek into the main building of the National Assembly.

Journalists and other staff are blocked by security personnel to have access to the main National Assembly building.

Staff and journalist were denied entrance while Lawmakers were allowed in without their vehicles.

It is, however not clear why these measures were taken but perhaps might not be unconnected with the political movements of politicians from one party to the other.

The lawmakers are on their annual recess, which started in July but were called to discuss supplementary budget.
