The House of Representatives yesterday hinted that the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) ongoing constitutional amendment process and status of the 2012 budget implementation will top the list of deliberations as federal lawmakers resume on Tuesday from their two-month long annual recess.
Also, the Lower House insisted that the September 18 resumption date remains sacrosanct.
The Lower House Deputy Chairman Media and Public Affairs, Victor Ogene, in a statement said the clarification came against the backdrop of inquires suggesting a likely shift in the resumption date of the House.
Ogene's statement read in part: "The annual vocation of the House of Representatives ends this weekend, as members begin plenary on Tuesday, September 18, 2012.
"Even while on recess, committees and individual members had been usefully engaged, through constituency outreach programmes."
