OrderPaperToday – The House of Representatives has adjourned plenary to next Tuesday over covid-19 fears.
The second wave of the pandemic is currently ravaging countries of the world.
This is not the first time the House would be adjourning plenary over covid-19.
The House adjourned on Wednesday shortly after resuming from an executive session on which they kept mute on what was discussed.
Leader of the House, Mr. Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, moved a motion for adjournment after the doors were flung open for journalists to have access to the press gallery.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, had on Tuesday when the parliament resumed from the extended Christmas break, announced that there were going to be new guidelines for conducting business.
Members had expected the guidelines at plenary today but the speaker, rather, read a communication from Mr. President on the newly appointed Service Chiefs.
Recall that the said communication was read in the Senate yesterday during plenary session.
