The House of Representatives has announced it would resume plenary on Tuesday amid the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.
The Clerk of the House, Patrick Giwa, disclosed this in a notice issued on Sunday night.
This comes five weeks after the green chamber had halted plenary over the increasing rate of the novel disease in Nigeria.
Giwa, however, explained in the notice that staff and aides of the lawmakers were asked to continue to work from home.
The statement read: “This is to inform all members of the House of Representatives that the House will now resume plenary session on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, at 10.am.
“Members are advised to take note of the new date of resumption, please.
”The Covid-19 guidelines approved by the Federal Government and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and additional guidelines developed by the House will be sent to members’ pigeon holes for collection on resumption.
“Staff and members’ aides are to work from home and will be notified when needed in the office for any special assignment.”
Nigeria recorded 91 new cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, on Sunday night, bringing the total number of confirmed infections reported in the country to 1273.
