The house of representatives says it will not suspend plenary over fears of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
Benjamin Kalu, the House spokesman, revealed this while addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday.
According to Kalu, the lawmakers will continue with sessions to enable them deliberate on “burning issues”.
“The house has been watching to see how things unfold, there are burning issues the house needs to address,” he said.
“If we close down and go, some of those things will not be addressed. There are burning issues in the country that the house needs to sit and resolve; that is why we cannot leave now.”
The house had on Wednesday proposed banning visitors from entering the National Assembly Complex.
