Reps resume plenary Tuesday

13 September 2012, 16:14

Abuja - The House of  Representatives is to resume plenary on Tuesday, Rep. Victor Ogene, the Vice Chairman,  House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, has said.

The House went on annual recess on July 19. 

Ogene said in a statement on Thursday that the disclosure became necessary to clarify speculations that the resumption date was shifted. 

He said Speaker Aminu Tambuwal  had instructed all standing committees of the House to undertake a thorough appraisal of the status of  the implementation of the 2012 Appropriation Act.

Ogene added that while on recess, members had interface with their constituents on the proposed constitution review process and the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) as well as  conducted oversight functions on the 2012 budget.

He explained that the development was in tandem with the unyielding desire of the seventh House of  Representatives to ensure appropriate and timely implementation of the national budget.
