One thought on “How snakes chased Ondo lawmakers out during plenary session

  1. Can’t the Legislatures understand simple logic of maintenance of the legislative house from the funds allocated for maintenance of the legislative appurtenances and other equipment? It is a disgrace for the state legislature to give excuse of the snake distruption of plenary sitting in hollow champer for going on an indefinite reccess.Somebody should be held responsible for not doing his or her job for constant fumigation of the champer would make the legislative chamber environment unconducive for snakes and rodents to dwell in the chamber.
    If after doing this,the snakes still come to disturb the legislatures’ plenary, they should seekt spiritual intervention.
