Minority leader in the house of representatives, Ndudi Elumelu has raised a point of order over leaking roof of the National Assembly, saying the flooded complex is “dangerous” for the lawmakers.
Elumelu expressed his concern over the matter on the floor of the lower chamber during Wednesday’s plenary session.
The source of the leak is the dome of the complex, which houses the main lobby that leads to the senate chamber and the house of representatives.
At plenary on Wednesday, Elumelu said: “If something is not done to address it, nobody owns one’s life, but we never can tell what can happen,”
“Coming into this place, you can see the cleaners; they are busy packing [mopping] the water that is coming down from this chamber. And to me, it is dangerous for our continuous participation in our day-to-day activities — representing our people, speaking for our people, for good legislation.
“So, I think that Mr Speaker, something needs to be done to address these leakages that we are having within this chamber. This is my submission.”
