Reps dump legislative duties in search of return tickets – Investigation



A desperate search by members of the House of Representatives for a return ticket in 2019 has begun, The PUNCH learnt on Sunday.

The elections are about 10 months away, but many members are said to be unsure of the road ahead, with the primaries of the political parties not too far off.

Findings indicated that the development had also led to a sharp drop in legislative duties by members at the National Assembly.

“Out of the 360 members, they are barely able to form a quorum at most sessions of the plenary these days.
