Similarly; the House of Representatives, will, after a brief sitting today, adjourn plenary indefinitely as coronavirus spreads in Nigeria hitting 40 cases already.

 

The Speaker, FEMI GBAJABIAMILA, made this known in his opening remarks at the plenary on Tuesday.

 

GBAJABIAMILA said the lawmakers would only work on an economic stimulus bill to protect Nigerians and the economy against the impact of COVID-19, after which the House would shut down.

 

The House had on March 3, 2020, resolved that the National Assembly should suspend plenary for two weeks for fear of coronavirus, asking the management to install screening and sanitation devices at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.
