Institute trains Enugu, Cross River, Akwa Ibom legislators on lawmaking
Director-General of the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS), Prof. Abubakar Sulaiman, has asked legislators to work towards building political parties around well-articulated ideologies rather than as mere opportunistic tools for seeking elections.
He gave this charge in his remarks during the training workshop on capacity building, organised in collaboration with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), at Ibom Icon Hotel and Golf Resorts, in Akwa Ibom State, yesterday.
The DG, who was represented by Dr. Shuaibu Danwanka, said the lawmakers would brainstorm on how to share ideas, build capacity and impact positively on the people.
He said the capacity-building workshop, which was attended by Enugu State, Cross River and Akwa Ibom House of Assembly members, would enriched their performance, stressing that the essence of the workshop was to see how to add value to the lawmakers and make Nigeria better for its citizens.
He commended the partner, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) and its Resident Representative, Dr. Vladimir Kreck, for sustaining the relationship of intervention with the States’ Houses of Assembly.
