Akwa Ibom Assembly reels out score card
Akwa Ibom Assembly reels out score card

The Akwa Ibom House of Assembly said it passed six Executive Bills and 10 private member Bills within the last 24 months.

The Speaker of the Assembly, Onofiok Luke, said this while briefing journalists on the sixth assembly’s mid-term score card at plenary on Tuesday.

He said that during the period under review, the Assembly passed 48 motions geared toward improving the living standards of Akwa Ibom people.

“The 6th assembly has been christened, “the people’s assembly” and its legislative responsibility has always been consciously guided by the greater interest of Akwa Ibom people.

“In the two years of existence of the people’s Assembly, six Executive Bills and 10 private member Bills were passed, totaling 16 out of 39 bills sponsored,” Luke said.

He said that the Bills covered areas like education, health, governance, youth development, empowerment, economic and revenue generation, environment, judiciary, security and social development.

The Speaker said that the assembly would not relent in its constitutional mandate of making laws for the overall benefit and growth of Akwa Ibom.

He said the Assembly under his leadership would remain steadfast to its peaceful disposition.

“This will no doubt help to maintain the political stability enjoyed in the state’s polity, foster economic and social development, engagement with stakeholders and Assembly relationship,’’ he said.
