•Enugu Speaker, Hon. Edward Ubosi

Members of the Enugu State House of Assembly (ENSHA) on Thursday proceeded on one month recess to enable the members cool off after many months of legislative tasks.

Speaker of the House, Hon. Edward Ubosi, who announced the holiday said that the House would resume on September 4, 2018.

Although the Speaker did not disclose the real reason of meeting with their constituents ahead of the campaigns for 2019 election, he jokingly said that they were going on August break like the women that go for annual August meeting for development projects in their communities.

“We are going on August break like our women go for their August meetings. Even if we have no meetings to attend, at least we can go to the farms,” he said.

Meanwhile, before the House proceeded on the break, they received the report of the Annual Accounts of the Government of Enugu State for the year ended 31st December 2017 together with the financial statements of the Auditor General.

Leader of the House, Hon. Ikechukwu Mellitus Ezeugwu presented the report to his colleagues.

The Speaker, Ubosi subsequently mandated the House Committee on Anti-Corruption headed by Hon. Chinedu Nwamba representing Nsukka East to look into the report to fish out the incongruities like parastatals that have not audited their accounts over the years among other, pointing out that it is no longer business as usual in the state.

The Enugu State Waste Management Authority Law (2nd Amendment) bill House Bill No2, 2018 passes the second reading.

Ubosi directed the House Committee Chairman on Judiciary, Public Petitions, Ethics and Privileges, Hon. Philip Nnamani, to make available copies of the bill to prepare his colleagues for the debate on the bill.
