The resumption of plenary by lawmakers in the Nigerian parliament has been rescheduled by the management of the National Assembly.

Plenary sessions earlier schedule to resume in both chambers of the Senate and the House of Representatives on September 25, are now extended by two weeks, to October 9, 2018.

Announcing this postponement in a statement signed and released on Sunday, Clerk to the National Assembly, Mr. Sani Omolori said the postponement of plenary resumption date was because of the on going primaries of the political parties, as the politicians gear up for the 2019 general election.

Part of the statement reads, “This is to inform all Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members that resumption of plenary session earlier scheduled for Tuesday, 25th September has been postponed to Tuesday 9th October due to the activities of the primaries of the political parties.”

Mr. Omolori further stated that “All Distinguished Senators and Honourable members are expected to resume plenary session by 10 am on the 9th of October, please.”
