He told The PUNCH that the House in truth, had yet to decide on a reconvening date.

This was contrary to the statement credited to the Deputy Speaker, Mr Yussuff Lasun, who last week announced that the National Assembly would reconvene tomorrow, to consider the budget for the 2019 polls and other pending issues forwarded to lawmakers by President Muhammadu Buhari in July.
