Despite the fear of insecurity in the nation’s capital, Abuja, the House of Reps have embarked on a long holiday till September.
The House on Wednesday adjourned till September 20th to observe its annual long holiday. It, however, said that the FCT is no longer safe, hence, lawmakers should stay away from the nation’s capital.
The adjournment was reached on Wednesday after plenary.
The holiday comes when there are reports of a deteriorating security situation in the Federal Capital Territory.
Speaking after the announcement of the adjournment, the Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu urged his colleagues to stay away from the nation’s capital.
“I want to beg members, Abuja is no longer safe, please, if possible, go back to your constituency. The place is so insecure,” he said.
