The incident of a leaking roof that halted session at the Senate chamber of the National Assembly on Tuesday has sparked more reactions.

During the Tuesday downpour in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, the Senate lobby of the National Assembly Complex was inundated with water, according to NewsDirect.

As guests and Senators arrived for the day’s business, the wind had blown off the roofs, leaving the lobby filled with rainwater.

Cleaners were seen fighting to manage the water in a video that went viral on social media.

Following the incident, some Nigerians took to social media to express their displeasure at the incident, citing the large sum of money recently spent for the complex’s repair.

Remember that the Federal Government set aside N9.25 billion in the 2020 budget for the reconstruction and retrofitting of the National Assembly (NASS) Complex.

It was part of the Federal Capital Territory Administration’s (FCTA) budgeted capital allocation.

A Nigerian socio-political activist, Omoyele Sowore on his verified Twitter handle said, “The rubber stamp @nassnigeria could not fix a leaking roof after budgeting N37b to fix the National Assembly complex. #RevolutionNow.

Below are some of the reactions from Twitter as compiled by DAILY POST correspondent.

@Mr-lordmekas: Mad people! Another way to embezzle money with the project of re-roofing.. na now una know say e Dey leak?

@Temijust1: Nigerians shouldn’t be deceived as the leaking roof is another plot to allocate 100 billion for the renovation of the leaking roof damaged intentionally by the house themselves.

@Micheal79147359: That building is not that old to start leaking. It shows the rut in the system and the failure of Nigeria as a whole. It is a shame.

@Von_Bismack: The current leadership of the National assembly renovated their building with 27b Naira, but immediately rain fell, the roofs started leaking. Yet Lawan had the guts to say that Saraki was the problem
