The Osun state House of Assembly on Tuesday announced the suspension of plenary for two weeks to allow members rest.
The complex of the house of assembly would also be disinfected during the recess as part of efforts towards containing the spread of COVID-19.
This is coming after majority of the members of the house of assembly were tested for the lethal virus last Thursday .
however, it was gathered that the decision was taken after the lawmakers received the report of their test and three tested positive for the virus.
The Chairman of the House Committee on Information Hon. Kunle Akande, in a press statement had explained that the short recess was to enable members take a break from the rigour of long legislative activities and also assist their constituents in post-COVID-19 economic efforts geared at making their lives better.
Akande said “The State House of Assembly under the leadership of Rt. Hon. Timothy Owoeye, in strict compliance with WHO and State Government protocols on the containment of the coronavirus, has also ordered the fumigation and immediate disinfection of the Assembly complex. “
“This is a proactive step targeted at curtailing the spread of the coronavirus disease within the House of Assembly complex. ” he said.
“While we underscore the importance of the legislature in a Democratic setting, we’ve allowed essential administrative work and personnel to run upon disinfection of the premises.”
