Giwa in the statement, however, stated that staff and members’ aides are to work from home and will be notified when needed in the office for any special assignment.

The House had in March suspended its plenary for two weeks in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease.

It later extended the suspension due to the lockdown announced by President Muhammadu Buhari in the FCT, Lagos and Ogun States.

Meanwhile, Nigeria has continued to witness an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.

According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), 91 new cases were recorded on Sunday, bringing the total infections in the country to 1,273.
