The adjustment in the date was contained in a statement signed by Dr Yahaya Danzaria, the clerk of the house and via its verified Twitter handle (@HouseNGR).

New Telegraph gathered that the reason for the postponement is to allow the members of the House to participate in the ongoing induction programme of the 10th National Assembly.

“This is to inform all Hon Members and the general public that the House of Representatives will not resume plenary on Tuesday 9th May 2023 as earlier adjourned. The next adjourned date will be Tuesday 16th May 2023.

“This change is intended to allow Members to partake actively in the ongoing induction program of the 10th National Assembly. All inconveniences are highly regretted,” the statement read.
