The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yussuff Lasun Thursday said that the Nigerian federal lawmakers will reconvene on Tuesday, August 14.

This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on National Assembly matters Ita Enang earlier in the week urged federal lawmakers to cut short the annual recess in order to attend to urgent national matters including the budget for the 2019 general elections.

The Senate and the House of Representatives proceeded on annual recess on July 24 to reconvene on September 25.

The deputy speaker of the House of Representatives said the agenda of the reconvene will primarily be the presidential budget request to fund INEC’s operations for the 2019 polls.
