National Assembly will reconvene on Tuesday, August 14 to consider INEC Budget for 2019 general elections and other issues.
This disclosure was made by Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yussuff Lasun on Thursday in a chat with journalists in Abuja.
Our correspondent gathered that the agenda will primarily be the presidential budget request to fund INEC’s operations for the 2019 polls
Recall that the National Assembly had been on recess since July 24, and they were expected to resume in September.
However, the need to attend to some issues that were pending before they proceeded on leave seems to compel them to reconvene earlier than scheduled.
The pending matters include: priority attention to the supplementary budget for 2019 general election, and the confirmation of some of President Muhammadu Buhari’s nominees — the Chairman of the Board of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, Dr. Muiz Banire.
