“The chamber is partially in darkness. The foyer and other offices of Parliament are also partially in darkness.

“The Minority, who were not enthused about the situation, have protested saying, “upon all the loans, President Mahama cannot fix dumsor”.

“The members are using their mobile phone torch light systems to aid their reading of the day’s Order Paper and other official documents which has been laid before the House for consideration and adoption.

“Members have now resigned to their seats chatting with one another.” has learnt that the facility’s stanby generator has no fuel to generate electricity.
