The National Assembly has postponed its resumption earlier slated for Tuesday, Sept 25 to October 9.

“This is to inform all Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members that the resumption of plenary earlier scheduled for Tuesday, September 25 has been postponed to Tuesday 9th October due to the activities of the primaries of the political parties.
“All Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members are expected to resume plenary session by 10.am on the 9th of October, please,” the statement said.
