Indications have emerged that the National Assembly leadership may constitute three committees today, Thursday.

It was gathered that after Senate President Ahmed Lawan and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila set of the three committees each, they will also announce the adjournment of both chambers sine die on June 20.

Lawmakers of both chambers would return home immediately after their plenary sessions because their offices were not ready, The Punch reports.

However, attempts to get the management of the National Assembly to disclose when the lawmaker’s offices will be ready failed.

A ranking Senator, who did not want his name mentioned, told The Punch, “The leadership of the All Progressives Congress and Peoples Democratic Party will send the names of their candidates to the presiding officers for the announcement as principal officers any moment from now.

“The Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives are expected to constitute the Rules and Business committees, interim media committees and House/Senate services committees.

“The House/Senate services committees, for instance, would see to the payment of the money the lawmakers would need to settle pressing needs especially, their accommodation.

“The lawmakers will also meet the House/Senate services committees to ensure that all the items needed are provided in the offices.”
