OrderPaperToday – Terseer Mark Gbillah is the member representing Gwer East/Gwer West federal constituency under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives.
Mr. Ghillah is a ranking member of parliament. He was elected into the House in 2015 to represent his constituents and has served in several committees since then. He is the current Deputy Chairman of Committee of Petroleum Resources (Downstream).
Following records, his legislative priorities are geared towards making effective oversight, public and private sector accountability, constitutional control of herdsmen, security and defense, appropriation and procurement processes, anti-corruption, telecom services, and infrastructure.
Surprisingly, despite being a two-term member of parliament with a wide range of political interests and expertise, Mr. Gbillah has no bill accredited to his name in the first two years of the 9th assembly. While eight counterparts in his state have bills tied to their names at midterm, he joins the group of two who makes a no-show on the bill chart.
Before entering parliament, he worked and served in a number of private businesses.
He was the CEO of Cyrosure Global Ltd, a Lagos-based company that specialized in construction, international and local consulting, real estate, international franchising, telecommunications, and agricultural.
He was also the project leader at Zain Nigeria Limited from 2005 to 2009, where he was in charge of overseeing projects for the expansion of Zain Nigeria Network Subscribers from 20 to 30 million.
After that, he worked as a project manager at Helios Towers Nigeria, where he was responsible for the overall management of the group’s network as well as the rollout plan in accordance with clients’ expectations.
Regardless of his differing private sector experiences, he fails to show up on bill sponsorship chart at midterm. However, representation and oversight functions, on the other hand, may be able to compensate for him as the tenure enters three years and more.
