Govs Must See Legislature As Partners, Not Appendages, Says Lagos Assembly

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Tuesday called on governors in Nigeria to treat state lawmakers as partners in the progress and development of states, instead of seeing them as appendages of the executive.

The legislature also called on the National Assembly to criminalise any action that violates the independence of the parliament.

Describing the legislature as the bedrock of democracy, the House also called on the National Assembly to criminalise any action that violates the independence of the parliament.

In a press statement, Mr Eromosele Ebhomele, the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, said the House passed the resolutions in commemoration of the 2024 edition of the International Day of Parliamentarism which was celebrated on June 30th.
