#MidTermRankings: Godday Odagboyi failed to make a show on Bill Chart

Godday Samuel Odagboyi is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), first elected to the House of Representatives in 2019 to represent Apa/Aguta Federal Constituency of Benue State.

The lawmaker had joined the green chambers under the platform of Labour Party (LP) before his defection to the majority party in September 2021.

OrderPaper’s Bill Chart for the 9th National Assembly, however, reveals that Odagboyi did not sponsor any bill in the first two years of his four-year tenure in parliament.

Giving him the benefit of doubt, it is possible that the lawmaker may still be undergoing learning on the process as a newbie in parliament. Notwithstanding the fact that there are other newbies who have sponsored bills in the period under review.

It is hoped that he will do better in the remainder of his constitutional four-year term at the National Assembly.

Editor’s Note: Rankings with the use of OrderPaper‘s Bill Chart are without prejudice to efforts in the area of oversight responsibilities, as well as representation through motions and petitions sent in by constituents.

However, lawmaking in the form of bill sponsorship remains a core duty expected of every legislator. In the absence of bills to a lawmaker’s credit, therefore, a good showing in the aforementioned areas is a boost to his/her track record.
