Obaseki lauds Edo Assembly for deepening democracy
…Urges New Legislators To Build On Existing Foundation
Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has commended the sixth Edo House of Assembly (EDHA), for its outstanding contributions in deepening democratic processes in the state and for supporting the executive arm in delivering dividends of democracy to the people.
Obaseki gave the commendation while speaking at a dinner organised by the state government for outgoing and incoming members of the Assembly at Government House, Benin City. He described the sixth Assembly as a progressive assembly, which contributed to positive changes in the state with bills and resolutions passed.
He said the quality of work put into the bills sent to the sixth Assembly for consideration was amazing, noting that the members have stamped their feet in the sands of the state’s democratic journey and urged incoming members of the seventh Assembly to build on the foundation laid by their predecessors in sustaining cordial relationship with his administration, as he runs a transparent government.
He tasked the new legislators to work towards having all the laws of the state as Edo laws, against the Bendel laws still in operation, adding that he believed in the independence of the other two arms of government, where the executive arm of government has no control over their activities.
