Worried by increasing number of cases of Covid-19 in the Nasarawa State House of Assembly Monday, urged Governor Abdullahi Sule to order the fumigation of its complex, including offices as part of measures to prevent the spread of second Coronavirus in the State.
The Speaker of the House, Ibrahim Balarabe Abdullahi made the call after the Majority Leader of the House, Umar Tanko Tunga (APC Awe North) moved a motion under matters of public importance on the floor of the house in Lafia, the State capital.
According to him, the fumigation would not only protect members and staff but other members of the public when they visit the House stating that “We are requesting His Excellency, Gov. Abdullahi Sule to direct the state Ministry of Environment to fumigate the House Tuesday, February 16, 2021”.
The Speaker assured of his continued commitment to operate an open door policy and an inclusive leadership for the overall development of the State.
Earlier, the Majority Leader of the House, Tanko Tunga, had stressed the need for the state government to fumigate the House hence the necessity to enable members, staff and visitors to remain safe due to the second wave of coronavirus.
“I want to move a motion that this House be adjourned till next week Monday so that the House can be fumigated against the second wave of the coronavirus for the safety of the members, staff and visitors”, he said.
