Coronavirus: Benue State Assembly Shut Indefinitely


The spokesman of the Assembly and House Committee Chairman on Information and Orientation Mr. Tertsea Gbishe who made this known yesterday in Makurdi said the decision to shut the Assembly was arrived at following the sudden spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in the state.

According to him, “given the nature of the assembly’s functions which requires that members interact with their constituents on one hand and top government functionaries in Ministries Departments and Agencies, MDAs, on the other, it is important to undertake regular COVID-19 test because of the exposure of members while carrying out their constitutional responsibilities.”
