The House of Representatives has decided to extend its current recess and members are now expected to resume on Tuesday, January 30.

The National Assembly had gone on break on December 30, 2023, after passing the 2024 Appropriation Bill and had initially set January 23, 2024, as the date to resume.

However, an official communication from the Clerk of the House, Yahaya Danzaria, has provided the lawmakers with an extra week before they need to resume.

This announcement was made by the House spokesperson, Akin Rotimi, on Sunday.

“I am directed to inform members that the resumption date for both the Senate and House of Representatives has been shifted upwards from Tuesday, January 23, 2024 (earlier announced) to Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at 11 am prompt. All inconveniences are regretted,” the communication read.

Prior to its recess, the House had since its inauguration in June 2023, considered a wide range of issues, including peace and security, social welfare, healthcare, education, infrastructure development, economic growth, and more.

With the instrumentality of robust debates, bipartisan collaboration, and sheer dedication to its constitutional responsibilities, the House passed crucial bills and adopted key resolutions that will shape the trajectory of the country in years to come.

At a special session held on December 30 for final consideration of the budget, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Abbas Tajudeen, lauded the dedication, unity of purpose, and willingness of his colleagues to engage in constructive debates instrumental in the legislative outputs recorded since the inauguration of the House.
