Early morning heavy downpour on Tuesday sacked members of the National Assembly plenary after having earmarked N37billion in the 2021 budget for repair of the complex.
The early morning rains in Abuja, the nation’s capital saw most offices of the sprawling Assembly Chambers leaking profusely on Tuesday with workers seen trying to mop away the water on the floor.
It was an embarrassing scene to see cleaners being deployed immediately to place containers at the leaking spots to collect the flowing water into buckets.
The cleaners were equally seen mopping and drying up the arena which was becoming flooded.
Some Senators already in Chambers came out to have a view of the development.
Most of them were seen discussing the incident.
