Breaking: Fire Guts National Assembly

The Senate was on Thursday, forced to stop proceedings after a fire outbreak in the technical unit of the assembly complex.

The Technical room located on the ground floor of the complex gutted fire, as staff were seen scampering for safety.

The legislators, while at plenary, had opted to ignore the development but Senator Ibrahim Gobir, Sokoto (APC), moved that the plenary be adjourned.


The condition is not very conducive because our chambers are there,” Senator Gobir moved.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in his ruling, said: “What you presented to us makes sense. Definitely, the chamber is not conducive for today’s s activities and as such, I would direct that we adjourn till Tuesday so that between now and the weekend the members of the services and maintenance unit can ensure that we bring the chamber into a conducive environment.”
