The Nigeria Senate was forced to adjourn its plenary on Thursday due to fire outbreak that emerged from room SB 68.
The outbreak sent smoke into the chamber through the air conditioning system.
Senator Abdullahi Gobir raised a point of order to lament that the chamber was not conducive for the lawmakers.
Senate President Bukola Saraki supported the motion. He said, “what you presented to us makes sense. Definitely, the chamber is not conducive for today’s activities and as such, I would direct that we adjourn till Tuesday so that between now and the weekend the members of the services and maintenance unit can ensure that the chamber is conducive for the next plenary”.
