National Assembly Complex:
The House of Representatives Tuesday resolved to proceed on a two-week break to avert the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
Nigeria recorded its first case of coronavirus after an Italian national who arrived Lagos from Milan tested positive to the virus, the Federal Ministry of Health said last Thursday.
Several others who were suspected to have had contact with the Italian have been quarantined.
The lawmakers took the decision while adopting a contribution by the Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu.
The motion is titled “Emergency response to the dreaded Coronavirus” brought before the House by Unyinye Idem.
