Senators Thursday abruptly adjourned sitting to next Tuesday ,February 20, following the fire outbreak from the technical room adjacent to the hallowed chamber.
Against the backdrop of the unfunctional air-conditions in the upper chamber as a direct consequence of the incident, the senate was ready to commence sitting as scheduled.
But senator Ibrahim Abdullahi Gobir representing Sokoto east moved for adjournment on the excuse that the chamber was unconducive.
He said, ‘The condition of our chamber is very unconducive. Yesterday, we engaged the contractors working in the senate. We believe it is now Saturday they will be able to finish it. I, therefore, move that we adjourn this sitting until Tuesday next week. I, so move’. Gobir averred.
Considering the motion so moved, senate president, Bukola Saraki hit the gavel in affirmation of the majority approval.
Though the mover of the motion, cited the work being carried in NASS as reason for the sudden adjournment but it was mainly not unconnected with the fire incident.
