Ahmed Lawan, the Senate President, has said that lack of compliance with the Legislature’s resolutions was hindering the achievement of good governance in Nigeria.
The Senate President, Lawan, made this statement at the 2020 National Legislative Conference tagged: “Legislative Investigation Powers, Expectations and Challenges and the Way Forward” in Abuja on Monday.
The conference organizers were the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in collaboration with HallowMace Communications Ltd.
The senate president was represented by the Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Sani Abdullahi. He said the Legislature alone could not provide the desired good governance to Nigerian citizens.
“It is clear that the National Assembly is pro-poor in terms of what we discuss in the chambers and even during investigations. These are the very important things we do, but we do not have the power to sing our songs; somebody has to sing it for us.
“In terms of peoples’ representations in our motions and investigations, one aspect is compliance with resolutions that come out of it.
“The lack of compliance with the National Assembly resolutions is a great deficit in our desire to develop and provide services called good governance. One hand cannot carry the entire house; that is why the framers of our Constitution decided to say the Judiciary is there, the Legislature is there, and the Executive is there. All of us have our various roles to play.
“Democracy must work for our people; that is the only way all of us can have the peace that we so much desire,” he said.
