Kano State House of Assembly has postponed its earlier scheduled resumption by three weeks as the legislative chambers is hit by mass defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP).
The newly formed NNPP has received at least 14 lawmakers in the last few days, nine from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and five from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The House leadership did not disclose the reasons for the postponement, but it might not be unconnected with the lawmakers’ mass exodus to the new party.
This postponement was disclosed in a statement by Uba Abdullahi, the Assembly’s press director, on Sunday.
According to Abdullahi, the postponement was announced by the Speaker of the Assembly, Hamisu Ibrahim-Chidari, in a statement.
Ibrahim-Chidari said the House was now expected to resume plenary and normal legislative activities on June 6.
