In a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus, The House of Representatives has announced that plenary and other activities of the House will be suspended indefinitely.

The Speaker, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, made the announcement at the resumption of plenary on Tuesday.

It would be recalled that in a chat with THISDAY on Monday, The Chairman House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Hon. Benjamin Kalu, said aside from barring visitors from entering the National Assembly complex, the House might review the need to stay at home for members and aides unless when it is absolutely necessary to meet.
