The minority leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, has raised an alarm over the leaking roof in the National Assembly chamber, describing it as dangerous to lawmakers' safety.

Elumelu, who raised a point of order during plenary on Wednesday in Abuja, pointed out to the House the danger inherent in coming to plenary to make laws under a leaking roof.

"Our chamber is leaking. While coming into the chamber this morning, we noticed the cleaner making frantic efforts to scoop water.

"This is dangerous to our day to day lawmaking, we cannot be representing our people and speaking for them under a leaking roof," he said.

Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, said that Elumelu's point of order was noted, saying, "this is very important to us."

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that leaks from the roof of the national assembly building had before now disrupted plenary sessions.

NAN also reports that the incident which followed a downpour, occurred at the ‘White House', a portion of the Assembly building housing both upper and lower legislative chambers.

Many lawmakers were stranded for some minutes while waiting for the rain to stop.

The lobby of the Assembly became impassable while cleaners were immediately mobilised to clear the pool of water. (NAN)
