Late start of proceedings in the House would be checked in this second meeting of the second session, Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority Leader revealed at a media encounter with members of the Parliamentary Press corps.

According to the Minority Leader, the Speaker and Leadership of the House are most of the time on time, but had to deal with some unforeseen issues hence the delay sometimes.

Again on the day the interior and defense Ministers appear to brief the House, they were there with the service commanders and they wanted audience with the Speaker, he had to grant them audience before sitting started, he said.

Mr. Haruna Iddrisu further pointed out that  most of the time MPs are in their office, watching through the monitors waiting to see the Speaker start proceedings before trooping in, leadership had cautioned against that.
