2020 budget to be passed on November 28

The National Assembly has resumed plenary on Tuesday (today) after its break following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria.

The lawmakers, meanwhile, adhered to the social distancing order by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in their sitting arrangements.

Also, it was observed as the lawmakers resumed plenary that the National Assembly lobby was less crowded as admittance of persons into the complex was restricted owing to the order banning crowding, as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
