NILS decries dearth of ICT facilities in National Assembly
APPARENTLY comparing Nigeria’s parliament with its counterparts in developing countries of the world, the National Legislative Institute has decried the dearth of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) facilities in the National Assembly.
Speaking yesterday on the NEEDS assessment of the capacity of the National Assembly, Director General of the NILS, Dr. Ladi Hamalai also maintained that the fallen standards of education in the polity has rubbed off negatively on the performance of both National Assembly staff and their legislative aides.
The NILS chief who made a comparative analysis of Nigeria’s parliament to those of the United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK) and South Africa said that if the National Assembly is fully fitted with ICT facilities, legislators as well as their support staff would have no difficulty in accessing data required for qualitative legislations.
