House Of Reps Adjourn Plenary Due To Faulty Microphones



The House of Representatives proceeding was halted on Wednesday  as a result of defective microphones thereby forcing the house to adjourn plenary to Thursday, November 8.

Mr Yakubu Dogara, the speaker of the house, stated that plenary had to be postponed because most of the microphones in the chamber were faulty.

Dogora hinted that the microphones were affected by a power surge which affected the panel of some of the microphones.

He added that the replacement panel will take three weeks to arrive Nigeria from Germany, as the microphones were installed in 1999.

Ahead of Thursday plenary, the speaker urged lawmakers to sit in the front row as the few functioning microphones would all be transferred to the front seats.

The faulty microphones, according to NAN, made it difficult for the members of the house to contributions to motions and bills from their seats during plenary.

Earlier, reporters, observers and other guests at the gallery had among themselves, complained of very poor audio.

The legislators voted in affirmative after a motion for adjournment was moved by the Chairman, House Committee on Rules and Business, Rep. Edward Pwajok (APC-Plateau).

The plenary ended at about 1.30pm with four items that were yet to be debated by the legislators still left on the Order Paper.
