Reps adjourn sitting over faulty sound system
The House of Representatives has adjourned over a faulty sound system.
Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, stated that the adjournment was necessary to create room for the sound system to be fixed.
The sitting was then adjourned till Wednesday, November 14, 2018.
He, however, stated that if the problem persists by Wednesday, the House will adjourn sitting indefinitely.
According to Dogara, the microphones were installed in 1999 and the panels would take three weeks to arrive Nigeria from Germany.
During plenary today, which lasted a little over an hour, lawmakers were seen passing a cordless microphone around to enable them to contribute on the floor of the House.
This is the second time in under one week that the House would be adjoining plenary over a faulty sound system.
