The Federal Secretariat in Abuja is currently in a total blackout.
The complex houses most of the ministries, department and agencies, of the Federal Government.
Activities in the complex have been grounded over a week now due to lack of electricity to power basic equipment in the building.
Sources said the Phase 1 of the Federal Secretariat complex also known as the Secretary of the Government for the Federation building was in darkness due to over N120 million electricity debt.
It was gathered that civil servants and some other public officers abandoned the duties in the complex due to the blackout.
Sources said some of the ministers whose offices are located in the building now boycott their offices.
The affected phase of the complex provides accommodation for the Ministries of Women Affairs, Niger Delta Affairs; Labour and Productivity; part of Health and many other government offices.
Also, staff of the offices affected who only come to sign the attendance register either use rechargeable lamps or torchlight from their phone to maneuver around the darkness.
