For the second time in one week, lawmakers in the Kogi State House of Assembly have failed to sit due to the absence of electricity in the legislature.

The non-availability of electricity in the legislature has resulted in an unbearable heat for the legislators and workers at the assembly.

The 6th Assembly rely mostly on generators for power due to the epileptic power supply in the state capital.

The Majority Leader, Matthew Kolawole, who moved for an adjournment on Wednesday, could not hide is feeling on the stuffy nature of the chamber.

It was gathered that the generator in the assembly had been faulty even as efforts to fix it failed to yield result.

This prompted the Speaker, Ahmed Imam, to suspend the three motions which were scheduled for deliberation on Wednesday.

The Assembly resolved to reconvene on Thursday in the hope that electricity supply to the legislature would have been restored.
