Lagos- Journalists who were covering the Lagos State House of Assembly, on Monday boycotted the House due to late sitting of members for the plenary session.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos reports that the House had always been in the habit of commencing plenary sessions late in the afternoon.
Monday’s plenary, which was supposed to commence by 12 noon, did not begin as at few minutes past 4:00 p.m, when the journalists decided to leave.
Some of the journalists had arrived the House as early as 10 a.m, hoping that the plenary session would commence by noon, as the House agreed at its last sitting, on April 8.
Some of the journalists that were present left the House when it was 3:00 p.m.
Moreover, some of the Assembly’s staff, who pleaded anonymity, also expressed their annoyance over the behaviour of the honourable lawmakers.
They wondered why the House was always in the habit of sitting late.
The officials complained that the late commencement was affecting their personal life as they always get late to their various houses.
Efforts to speak with the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Publicity, Security and Strategy, Segun Olulade on the issue, proved abortive.
