The Zamfara State House of Assembly Thursday announced the suspension of all activities including plenary until further notice.
The Speaker of the House, Alhaji Nasiru Magarya, disclosed this in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the Assembly, Mustafa Jafaru-Kaura.
Magarya expressed deep concern over the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
He said the Assembly decided to its plenary, committee sittings and oversight functions as part of measures to curtail the spread of the disease in the state.
The speaker said: “Though there is no outbreak of the pandemic in the state, we are aware of the concerted efforts made by all relevant stakeholders to ensure that the disease will not get its way to the state.
“We commend the efforts of Governor Bello Matawalle for taking proactive measures aimed at containing the spread of Covid-19 in the state.
“With this suspension, members, and staff of the House are, therefore, directed to stay at home until further notice.”
Magarya urged members of the House to visit their constituencies to re-orientate their people on how to prevent themselves from the disease through basic hygiene.
