Divergent opinions have been expressed online in response to a video that shows senators waiting for the Abuja Electricity Distribution PLC (Disco) to restore electricity before the start of the session.

Senators had to wait until the power was restored since there was a partial blackout in the Red Chamber today.

The plenary session was called by Senate President Godswill Akpabio shortly after the electricity was restored.


It is important to keep in mind that the Abuja Energy Distribution PLC threatened to stop providing energy to 86 Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) in February because of an unpaid debt of N47.1 billion.

The Ministry of Finance, Information, Budget, Works and Housing, Presidential Villa, Nigeria Police Force, barracks, CBN Governor, Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), State Liaison Offices in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are a few of the MDAs.
