Reps constitute standing committees

Lawan Hamidu, Abuja


The Nigerian House of Representatives has announced the constitution of 102 (one hundred and two) standing committees.

The committees are to liaise with various government agencies and departments on behalf of the House for easy legislative business.

Last week, the House announced suspension of the standing committees to September when the lawmakers resume from their annual recess, after it was expected that it will be constituted before the vacation.

It would be recalled that the eighth Assembly had ninety-six committees.
