The   Edo State House of Assembly yesterday relied on the services of a rented generator for electricity supply to the chambers, which enabled the legislators to hold plenary.

It was gathered that the lingering electricity crisis at the House degenerated recently, following alleged shabby job carried out on the faulty power generating plant at the House.

Sources said the repair was contracted to one of the members at the sum of N9 million without positive result. 

It was further gathered that in order to avoid embarrassment, the House yesterday rented the generating set.

It could be recalled that the Speaker, Justin Okonoboh, had two weeks postponed plenary over his alleged impeachment plot.

He later told journalists that the development was to allow for maintenance work at the hallowed chamber, including the repair of the power generating plant.

“Postponement is very convenient for us. There was no impeachment. The generator was malfunctioning and I came early Monday morning to inspect some of these work needed to be done so as to avoid embarrassment during plenary sitting” he said.
