On Tuesday, March 5th , Nigerian Senators  put the commencement of their sitting on hold for a moment over the unavailability of power supply in the red chamber in Abuja.

Power was later restored and the lawmakers converged in their chamber to begin the day's plenary session.

Recall that the Abuja Electricity Distribution PLC in February threatened to disconnect the electricity supply of 86 Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) over a total debt of N47.1bn

Some of the MDAs include the Ministry of Finance, Information, Budget, Works and Housing, barracks, Nigeria Police Force, Presidential Villa, CBN Governor, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), and state liaison offices in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
