We won’t suspend recess but polls budget’ll be top priority in Sept – Reps
However, the House of Representatives, in its response, said the National Assembly operated on a calendar, which it must follow through.
The spokesman for the House, Mr Abdulrazak Namdas, reminded Enang that “being a veteran of the legislature,” the presidential aide was better placed to know that the National Assembly went on annual recess between July and September.”
He added, “It is not like the National Assembly was adjourned for some days that he will be asking us to reconvene. The legislature is on an annual recess and he knows that this is about the calendar.”
However, Namdas assured Enang that none of the President’s requests would suffer any setback.
“As soon as we return in September, the President’s requests will receive immediate attention. They will be the top priorities of the House. So, there is really nothing to worry about,” he added.
