The National Assembly will reconvene on Tuesday, August 14 to consider the budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) budget and other pressing issues in the country, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yussuff Lasun, announced on Thursday.

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 pending issues that were before the legislators before they proceeded on leave seem to compel them to reconvene.

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.

Details later…
