Power outage disrupts Reps’ plenary

07 May 2015, Abuja – The House of Representatives had to temporarily suspend plenary on Tuesday due to power outage that lasted over 30 minutes.

Immediately power was restored all the airconditioners installed in the Green Chamber suddenly stopped functioning.

The presiding officer, Emeka Ihedioha had to start cracking jokes to calm down the lawmakers repeatedly reminding them that they are patriotic Nigerians that they can work without airconditioners.

These soothing words eventually calmed the lawmakers who continued the plenary without complaints.
