The House had initially fixed Tuesday 16th April 2024 as the original resumption day but had to postpone it by a week to 23rd April 2024.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday postponed its resumption date by a week as it was earlier scheduled to resume plenary session on the 23rd of April 2024.

OrderPpaper recalls that the House had initially fixed Tuesday 16th April 2024 as the original resumption day but had to postpone it by a week to 23, April 2024.

In a statement by the Clerk of the House, Yahaya Dan’Zariya, he said it does not enable the lawmakers ample opportunity to carry out their constituency outreach and also due to the planned security summit.

The House of Representatives wishes to announce the further rescheduling of the resumption date from the ongoing recess. The new resumption date is now set for Tuesday, April 30, 2024, at 11:00 a.m.

“This adjustment, as communicated by the Clerk of the House of Representatives, Dr Yahaya Danzaria, Esq., in an internal correspondence to Honourable Members on Wednesday, is aimed at giving Honourable Members more time for constituency outreach to secure adequate input in the constitution review process.

“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.

“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 2 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.”
