For the third time this week, the House of Representatives has adjourned plenary over the failure of the public address system in the chamber.

The technical issue, which has persisted for about three weeks, had forced the House to adjourn plenary on Thursday last week and Tuesday this week.

Following his opening prayers on Wednesday, the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, announced that the chamber would have to adjourn sitting to Tuesday, with the hope that a temporary measure would be put in place ahead of time.

Noting the chamber had been under criticisms, Dogara stated that the lawmakers had nothing to hide about the dysfunctional state of the public address system, adding that they needed to tell Nigerians the truth about the situation.

The Speaker asked the committees to use the opportunity to conclude their oversight visits to Federal Government’s ministries, departments, and agencies, urging them to get their reports ready by Tuesday.

Two motions were considered by the lawmakers before they adjourned.
