The House of Representatives is to hold a plenary on Wednesday to facilitate the passage of three (3) Bills, which are of Urgent Public Importance.
The bills are, the Proceeds of Crime Bill, the Money Laundering Prohibition Act Amendment Bill and the Terrorism Prevention Act Amendment Bill.
A statement from the Clerk House of Representatives, Dr Yahaya Danzaria, said the passage of the three bills would equally enable Nigeria meet some international deadlines and obligations.
