Published

on

The House of Representatives has offered an insight as to why it enjoys a harmonious relationship with the Executive Arm of government.

the Deputy Spokesperson of the House, Hon. Philip Agbese, in a chat with reporters explained that the development may not be unconnected to the leadership qualities of the Hiuse Speaker,bDr Tajudeen Abbas.

Agbese particularly adduced the cordial relationship between the Speaker and the entire members of the House as reason for the absence of the acrimonious between the legislature and executive as was the case in previous Assemblies.

According to Agbese, “The towering leadership qualities of Mr. Speaker, RT. Hon. Tajudeen Abbas (Ph.D) has accounted for the peace, unity and tranquility the House currently enjoys, as well as the harmonious working relationship with the executive and the MDAs thereunder.”

He said, Nigerians are now seeing a different Parliament under Speaker Abbas, saying, the era of bickering and wasting precious time of the parliament on crisis that are seen as anti-progress and un-parliamentary, are over.

Agbese who represents Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo Federal Constituency of Benue State, also attributed the success of the passage of the 2024 Budget in record time to the maturity in the leadership of the Honourable Speaker, which has helped to sustain the January-December budget cycle.

He said, “There were times in this country when the President was bullied and yelled at when he appeared before a joint session of the National Assembly to present a budget estimates. This was done by aggrieved personalities who are Members of the Parliament.

“But you see this 10th Assembly, Members of Parliament are at peace with the executive, making the business of governance to move in neck breaking speed, to the advantage of the common people.

” It does not mean that the Parliament is rubber-stamped; it simply means the Lawmakers put the general interest of the people far above personal interests and both arms of government respect their boundaries in balancing their powers.

“This could only be possible in an Assembly where the Speaker handles issues with maturity and sees Nigeria as his project and how the project grows is only his business, nothing more.

“These and many other qualities you cannot take away from the Honourable Speaker of the 10th House and if you peep into the Legislative Agenda of the 10th House, you would believe that this is just an early morning on creation day. Nigerians should expect the best Assembly ever in the history of this country, under His Excellency, RT. Hon. Tajudeen Abbas (Ph.D)”.

Agbese added that, working with Speaker Abbas is a great pleasure of the Lawmakers, saying, his leadership qualities endeared him to the hearts of the people, “why the parliament has remained peaceful, coordinated and united behind him”.
