NASS Leaking Roof Caused By Blockages Of Drainages, FCDA

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCDA) said on Friday that the leaks in the National Assembly Complex were caused by drainage blockages that allowed water to seep through expansion joints in the roof slab.

Full waterproofing of the White House building’s roof is a crucial part of the projected refurbishment of the National Assembly Complex, he adds.

The FCDA Head, Public Relations & Information Unit, Richard A. Nduul, made this remark accessible to newsmen in Abuja.

According to the statement ;
“The attention of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) has been drawn to the recent flooding of the lobby of the National Assembly Complex, Abuja resulting from leakages from the roof.  Our findings indicate that the leakages are traceable to blockages of drainages leading to seepage of water through expansion joints in the roof slab.

“Full waterproofing of the roof of the White House building is a major aspect of the proposed renovation of the National Assembly Complex.

“Management of the National Assembly approached the FCDA in 2019 for a total rehabilitation and upgrading of the NASS Complex to bring it in tune with Parliamentary Buildings around the world.

“This contract is currently undergoing procurement process in line with the Procurement Act of 2007 and will therefore be awarded as soon as it is concluded in conformity with the requirements of the Act and also considering all other relevant parameters.

“The Authority (FCDA) therefore assures that when the time comes, this project will be executed meticulously in order to ensure that the Nation gets value for the funds that will be expended as this has been the tradition with every other assignment which the Authority has undertaken.”

It would be recalled that Nigeria Senate on Wednesday blamed the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCDA) for not renovating the National Assembly Complex since it was built and led to a National embarrassment.
