The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has said that the life of the current House is still on until the next three months.
Dogara made this known in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Turaki Hassan, on Sunday in Abuja.
The speaker said that pending issues before the House need urgent legislative attention, including the 2019 Appropriations Bill.
He further urged the public to ignore speculations of handover to contenders for his position.
“The Speaker is concentrating in accomplishing all he promised in the Legislative Agenda of the House of Representatives.
“Who becomes what in the 9th House of Representatives is not the concern or business of the current Speaker, Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara.
“You should please spare him from these unfounded speculations,” Turaki said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a section of the media has been awashed with reports on likely prime contenders for the leadership race of both chambers of the National Assembly.
