The House of Representatives on Wednesday adjourned plenary session due to faulty microphone system.
It was the second time during the week that it shelved plenary having done same on Tuesday.
Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, said the problem has not been fixed because it can only be done by the manufacturers of the microphones.
“Unfortunately up till now we have been unable to fix the problem because we are not masters of this technology here.”
“I have been told that the microphones on the rows on my right are not working. Only rows seven to 11 are working. rows one to six are not functioning.”
“The system was fixed in 1999 and this technology has a lock and anything that happens to it, we have to reach out to the manufacturers,” Dogara said.
Dogara said the House was not ashamed to be criticized as they are representatives of the people.
The speaker, who adjourned the plenary said, the House will take items on the order of importance that do not require debate before it adjourns to next week.
Two weeks ago, the House also adjourned its plenary over the same problem.
