Amid the early morning rain on Tuesday, the Senate lobby of the National Complex was filled with water leaking from the roof. Cleaners were seen battling to control water from flowing into the Chambers.
It will be recalled that the sum of N37 billion was budgeted for the maintenance of the complex in the 2020 budget which elicited wild reactions from the public including the Civil Society Organisations, CSOs.
The controversy that trailed the budget which was considered too outrageous led to its reduction, but it wasn’t approved by the Federal Executive Council.
The National Assembly complex is the property of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA which is responsible for its maintenance too.
