NATIONAL ASSEMBLY SET TO TAKE OVER FUNCTIONS OF RIVERS STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY.



Following the turn of event from Rivers House of Assembly Appeal Judgements, the National Assembly may be set to take over legislative functions and powers of the Rivers State house of Assembly.


The Appeal court sitting in Abuja had in its various judgements ordered re-run in 22 Assembly constituencies out of the 32 member house that make up the Rivers State house of Assembly. The PDP has maintained 9 seats while the APC is left with just a seat, leaving the Assembly with the total of 10 legitimate members including the Speaker.

The law only requires only 11 out 32 member house to be able to form quorum necessary for any legislative seating. But so far, only 10 members left in the House can not form quorum and therefore by law will not continue with there legislative functions as members of the state Assembly atleast for now.
