The National Assembly will reconvene on Tuesday, August 14.
The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yussuff Lasun, has just announced it.
The agenda will primarily be the presidential budget request to fund INEC’s operations for the 2019 polls, he said.
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.
The lawmakers had attempted to meet on Tuesday, but security operatives from the Department of State Services, acting on the order of their erstwhile Director-General, Lawal Daura, mounted a blockade, preventing the lawmakers from gaining entrance.
The face-off led to the sacking of Daura by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, who condemned the siege as an affront to democracy.
