The management of National Assembly has shifted the date of resumption of lawmakers from their annual recess by one week.

The complex has started wearing a new look owing to intensive renovation work already carried out, just as all department have now been adequately illuminated.
The lawmakers were initially billed to resume on September 19, whereas they are now to resume on September 26, 2017.
The Clerk to the National Assembly, Mr. Mohammed Sani-Omolori, announce the postponement of lawmaker’s resumption in a statement he issued and made available to newsmen on Wednesday.
