Reps fail to consider report on legislative agenda

The Legislative Agenda identifies and highlights the direction the House intends to take to achieve its goals over the next four years.

The House of Representatives failed to consider the report on the Legislative Agenda despite listing it on the Order Paper for consideration.

The report on the Agenda was listed for consideration alongside the report of the Ad-hoc Committee on the Review of Standing Orders of the House, however, they were not taken.

Recall that OrderPaper’s LIFE SERVICE for the week hinted that the report on the Legislative Agenda would be considered by the Green Chamber.

The reports were listed as number 20 and 21 on the legislative day business document as captured below; “CONSIDERATION OF REPORTS”

Ad -hoc Committee on Legislative Agenda: Hon. Julius Ihonvbere:

“That the House do consider the Report of the Ad-hoc Committee on Legislative Agenda of the House of Representatives and approve the recommendations therein” (Laid: 24/10/ 2023).”

Ad-hoc Committee on the Review of Standing Orders of the House of Representatives: Hon. Igariwey Enawo:

“That the House do consider the Report of the Ad-hoc Committee on the Review of Standing Orders of the House Representatives and approve the recommendations therein” (Laid: 24/10/2023).”

Following deliberation of other items listed on the order paper, Speaker Tajudeen Abbas deferred consideration of the reports.

“All other items on the other are to be stepped down for another legislative day”, he stated.

The Legislative Agenda has become the common term to describe the four-year plan of policies and activities by previous and current assemblies of the National Assembly.

The agenda is encapsulated in a document by which members of the public and the lawmakers themselves assess the performance of any assembly given the goals it set for itself.
