The 8th House of Representatives will assert its role in providing quality leadership in the areas of accountability, transparent government, citizens engagement, as well as constituency representation.

This was disclosed in the Legislative Agenda of the 8th National House of Representatives which took off yesterday, against the background of huge expectations from Nigerians about the way government business is conducted at the National Assembly.

In addressing these expectations, the House of Representatives is moving to implement a Legislative Agenda that will position the House to deliver legislation in aid of development and reforms aimed at improving conditions of living in Nigeria.

This Agenda outlines steps and prioritises legislative actions required to achieve set goals and objectives. Some of the agendas on the list however include: Legislative needs assessment; Internal operations/processes; National Assembly communication; priority legislation; Anti-corruption; Review of the laws of the federation and Reduction of cost of governance.

The House has, however, adopted this Legislative Agenda as a framework to guide the operations of the House from 2015 – 2019, in which the implementation of the Agenda will require the cooperation of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Executive Arm of the Government of the Federation.
