In a bid to prevent staff and members of the Ondo State House of Assembly from the second wave of the Covid-19, the leadership of the House has embarked on fumigation of the Assembly complex.
All crucial areas within the complex including the Hallowed Chamber, library, mechanic workshop, fuel dump and offices were fumigated.
The routine exercise which comes up periodically is meant to safeguard the Assembly complex from reptiles and create a conducive environment for legislative activities to thrive.
While addressing journalists Chairman House Committee on Information, Honourable Olugbenga Omole observed that the House would soon begin to attend to crucial issues of public interest, hence the need to prepare the ground for a hitch-free session.
Hon Omole noted that because of the importance attached to the exercise, the entire complex was under lock to give room for a thorough fumigation.
“Monday was chosen for the fumigation because legislative business is always at its lowest ebb on Mondays”.
Omole maintained that the exercise, being a periodic one, was meant to protect and guarantee the health of members and staff of the House.
