NASS: International development partners applaud legislative agenda, pledge support

Major international development organisations in Nigeria have expressed their readiness to partner the 9th House of Representatives in the implementation of its revised Legislative Agenda.

The Speaker House of Representative National Assembly made this known when he received delegation of some international development agencies at the roundtable which included Heads of World Bank, Delegation of European Union Commission to Nigeria, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the FCDO Partnership.

According to  Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, the new approach to legislation is people centered. He explained the drive behind the need for the involvement of the Nigerian people in every piece of law from the House, saying, “When I became Speaker in June last year, I committed to broad reforms of government and governance infrastructure.

“I believed then, and I still believe that until we fix the way we run the government in Nigeria, we will always be limited in our ability to meet our people’s expectations regardless of our best interests,” he said.
