The House of Representatives on Tuesday adjourned plenary for seven legislative days in honour of two of their colleagues’ who died during the last Easter break.

Names of the diseased are Honorable, Rep Haru na Maitala and Rep Suleiman Aliyu Lere, representing Jos North/Bassa federal constituency Plateau state and Lere Federal Constituency Kaduna state in the National Assembly.

In his remarks during Tuesday plenary, the Speaker of the house of Representative honorable Femi Gbajabiamila, said the leadership decided the House should adjourn for the rest of the week to enable them pay proper respect to their departed colleagues.

The speaker noted that the adjournment will not affect committee works.

The Speaker said the death of the two members came as a huge shock to the leadership and members of the Lower Chambers, describing Maitala as a quiet gentleman, who was committed to the progress of his community.

He regretted that the lawmaker died shortly after returning from an official assignment to the ECOWAS parliament and while travelling to attend his son’s wedding in Jos.

He disclosed that the lawmaker had contested the seat of the House of Representatives on several occasion without success, but won the 2019 elections to represent Jos North/Bassa Federal constituency of Plateau state.

 “He was in court for almost two years before the court declared him winner. We recently inaugurated him, only for him to die few weeks after. He was a gentleman and committed to the development of his constituency.

“When the House resumes next week Tuesday, we will be holding a valedictory session of late Ossy Prestige. I appeal to members to make themselves available on that day for the valedictory session.” he said.
