Reps resume, adjourn plenary in honour of fallen colleague

House of Representatives has adjourned plenary, minutes after it resumed from its 2020 Christmas and New year holidays.

The adjournment was to honour a fallen member from Abia State, Mr Ossy Prestige who died on Sunday, February 7, 2021.

The Speaker, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila while announcing the development to the House expressed shock and regrets.

He said though there were many announcements including a letter from President Muhammadu Buhari informing the House about the appointment of the new Service Chiefs, the parliament would still not be sitting.

The Speaker, however, gave hints of new COVID-19 safety measures to be announced on Wednesday.

He described late Ossy Prestige as a friend and active member of the 8th and 9th House.
