Burnt Kogi Assembly complex renovated, plenary to resume Monday: Speaker

Members of the Kogi House of Assembly will, on Monday, resume plenary at the renovated assembly complex in Lokoja, following the completion of renovation work there, the speaker, Umar Yusuf, said.

Mr Yusuf disclosed this through his chief press secretary, Yabagi Mohammed, in a telephone interview on Sunday.

He said the complex had been fully renovated and handed over to the assembly.

“The renovation of the complex has been completed, and we hope to resume plenary in the complex by tomorrow, December 11, by God’s grace,” the speaker declared.

On October 10, 2022, the complex was razed down by a mysterious fire, prompting the state government to award a contract for its renovation.

Meanwhile, Oladipo Bayode, the convener of the Annual Kogi Built Environment and Building Materials Exhibition (BEBM), has commended the technical competence and workmanship put into the renovation of the assembly complex.

He described the job as “a world-class construction with high value for money”.

Mr Bayode, who gave the commendation during a visit to the project site, commended the contractor and all service providers who handled the building renovation project.
