The blackout occurred while Hon. Hilary Bisong of Boki 2 State Constituency was addressing the House on the rationale and objectives of his bill; Cross River State Lottery Board Bill 2015.
The Speaker, Hon. John Gaul Lebo, in less than 3 minutes of waiting for alternative power source after the blackout which occurred at exactly 11:48am ruled that the House should adjourned till tomorrow Thursday 12th.
