A video has surfaced online showing the drama that played out on Tuesday, at the New Building section of the National Assembly Complex, when the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs resorted to the use of a lamp.
The Senate Committee resorted to this method following a power outage during the screening of the 46 non-career ambassadorial nominees sent to it by President Muhammadu Buhari for legislative approval.
The power outage, which occurred at 12:13pm when the sixth nominee was before the committee, lasted over one hour.
Cameramen from media organisations, who were not armed with lamps in anticipation of the blackout, were seen using their phones’ torchlight to provide light for their shots.
