The House of Representatives will resume plenary on September 20, 2022.

 This was disclosed in a statement signed by the clerk to the House, Dr Yahaya Danzaria on Saturday.

 It reads, “This is to inform all honourable members that the House of Representatives will resume plenary as earlier scheduled.  However, due to the ongoing renovation taking place in the Old Chamber, members are expected to resume plenary on the same date Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at the new improvised chamber in Room 0.28, New Building with a capacity for 118 seats only.  

“This new chamber is extended by an upper deck provision in Room 231, New Building with capacity for 236 seats.  The rooms are connected audio-visually and electronically with large screens.

“Accordingly, there are no designated seats, apart from the allocation for presiding and principal officers. Therefore, all other sitting arrangements are based on arrivals.

“It is equally important to note that because this is a temporary improvised arrangement, no provisions are made for legislative aides due to want of space.”
