“I hereby move that Hon. Moshood Oshun and Hon. Raheem Adewale be placed on suspension indefinitely,” the Speaker said.

Newsmen report that the two decisions were supported through voice votes by the members present during plenary session.

Newsmen report that the request for the removal notice of the two principal officers and change in the leadership was contained in a letter read at plenary by the Clerk of the House, Mr Azeez Sanni.

Sanni explained that the letter, signed by the 26 members, notified the House to change the leadership of the House including, Mr Rotimi Abiru as the Chief Whip and Deputy Majority Leader, Mr Olumuyiwa Jimoh.

He said their removal and suspension came amidst speculation that they were involved in critical issues that could divide the House and that more revelations might come in the coming days.

Newsmen report that the House subsequently adjourned sitting to Tuesday.

Corona Virus: US Seeks Medical Professionals for Visa Appointment

The United States has asked medical professionals around the world who want to work in America to reach out for visa appointment.

On Thursday, the United States overtook China as the country with the highest number of novel coronavirus patients anywhere in the world.

 

To further tame the spread of the virus and treatment of those infected, the US is calling out to medical professionals to apply to work in the North American country.

“We encourage medical professionals seeking to work in the United States on a work or exchange visitor, particularly those working to treat or mitigate the effects of COVID-19, to reach out to the nearest embassy or consulate to request a visa appointment,” the statement read.

The US is also extending visas for medical professionals in the country.

“For those foreign medical professionals already in the United States: J-1 Alien Physicians (medical residents) may consult with their program sponsor, ECFMG, to extend their programs in the United States.
