National Assembly roof leaks during rainfall

A heavy rainfall has exposed the weakness of the roof installation the National Assembly building complex on Tuesday after several places in the building got flooded.

The heavy rain which fell in the early hours of Tuesday gave the National Assembly workers a tough time as they struggle to drain the floor of the heavy flood resulting from several leakages in the roof of the building.

The central lobby at the ‘White House’ section of the building, which adjoins the Senate and House of Representatives chambers was also flooded.

Some other areas affected include the third and last gate to the premises as well as the road linking the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to the National Assembly were especially flooded.

The Senate resumed plenary as workers of the two private firms engaged for cleaning services at the complex were busy mopping the floor while it rained.

Water could be seen dropping from several points on the famous green roof. Some senators watched as the workers struggle to keep the floor dry.

At the House, the downpour delayed legislative activities as several committees which had scheduled the meetings and hearings for the morning were forced to delay the events, as several workers and guests were said to have been trapped in their vehicles.
