CISLAC tasks National Assembly on reversing trust deficit
The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) has called on the ninth National Assembly to prioritise the constitutional role of the National Assembly, immediate and pressing development challenges facing Nigeria’s democracy and the people; long term development needs and vision for Nigeria, need for congruence of direction among the three arms of government and reversal of the low public confidence and trust deficit facing government across board.
The Executive Director, CISLAC, Mr. Auwal Musa, disclosed this in a statement to set agenda for the National Assembly.
He noted that the trust deficit facing the National Assembly is major baggage and burden it inherited.
He sais: “The leadership and entire members have the option of either pretending and ignoring these and continuing with business as usual or rallying its members for self-introspection.
“The latter represents a distinguished and honourable course. We have no doubt in our minds that you will let your good conscience and empathy for your constituencies and the people of Nigeria guide you in your assignment.”
He, therefore, said the 9th Assembly must put as its primary target for the next foreseeable years, the primacy of recovering and restoring popular confidence in the National Assembly, as its most important and overarching priority.
