Senate adjourns plenary, threatens action against MDAs

House of Representatives has adjourned plenary to Tuesday Feb.28, to enable its standing committees complete work on the 2017 budget proposal.

Chairman of the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas says the brief suspension became necessary to allow members to concentrate on the budget.

Namdas also commended the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo for communicating to the National Assembly reasons he had to withhold assent to four bills.

He further said that the National Assembly would take the request of the Federal Government for a resolution on the 500 million dollars Eurobond seriously.

Osinbajo had sought the approval of the National Assembly for the issuance of 500 million dollars Eurobond in the International Capital Market (ICM) to fund the 2016 budget deficit.
