The reality of becoming a fully autonomous arm of government was given a boost recently, as the State House of Assembly, committed the Bill for the establishment of the House of Assembly Service Commission to the relevant Committee for further legislative input.
This was as a result of the bill scaling second reading at plenary session of the House.
The Lawmakers in a unanimous voice vote agreed that the bill would enhance efficiency and strengthen democracy.
A service commission is very vital to the smooth running of the legislature, especially in handling establishment and service matters.
Furthermore, the lawmakers agreed that proper management of funds was crucial to the sustenance of the proposed autonomy for legislative and judicial arms of government, hence the need for its speedy consideration.
They expressed appreciation to PASAN AND JUSUN for championing the cause of the struggle for the implementation of autonomy for the Legislature and Judiciary, as entrenched in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Speaking on the development, Speaker of the House Rt Honourable (Prophet) Oleyelogun Bamidele David, commended Governor Rotimi Akeredolu for his understanding in the course of the struggle.
