…As lack of allocation forces NASS to postpone resumption date by one week





By Henry Umoru

ABUJA—STRONG indications emerged yesterday that lack of funds for senators and members of the House of Representatives to spend when they resume next week may have forced the National Assembly to postpone the resumption date from its annual recess by one week.

In a statement yesterday by Clerk  of the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, the senators and members of the House of Representatives who were scheduled to resume next Tuesday, September 19, would now resume on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

The National Assembly had on Thursday, July 27, adjourned for its annual recess to resume September 19.

The statement entitled, “Postponement of Resumption”, read:   “This is to inform all senators and members of the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, that the resumption date    of both Houses in plenary has been rescheduled from    Tuesday, September 19, 2017, to Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

“All senators and members of the House of Representatives are by this notice, requested to resume sitting in plenary on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.“

Though no official reason was given for the postponement, Vanguard gathered that it was in connection with lack of funds.

as the lawmakers may not want to come around without money to spend, having spent the last allocation.

A source told Vanguard that the next allocation would be for October, November and December, just as the source said the last allocation was for July, August and September, adding that the present month was paid during the holiday.
