The Presidency on Wednesday commended the House of Representatives for giving prompt action to two executive bills that scaled through second reading.

This is contained in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by Alhaji Suleiman Kawu, Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (House of Reps).

“We wish to thank the House of Representatives under the leadership of Speaker Yakubu Dogara for passing two of our bills today, June 15, 2016,’’ the statement said.

“One is a Bill for an Act to Provide for the Domestication and Enforcement in Nigeria of the Avoidance of Double Taxation Agreement between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Kingdom of Spain.

“The other is a Bill for an Act to Provide for the Domestication and Enforcement in Nigeria of the Avoidance of Double Taxation Agreement between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Republic of South Korea and for Other Related Matters.’’

According to the statement, this singular action has shown that the House is solidly behind the executive on its numerous policies aimed at making Nigeria better.

“We hope you will also pass our other bills that are currently before the House with the same zeal that you passed these two.

“Indeed, we believe that this will guaranty a robust and cordial relationship between the executive and the House in the next three years.

“While we thank the House for passing these two bills and others before now, we look forward to your usual cooperation for the passage of other Executive Bills we intend to bring before the hallowed chamber soon,” the statement stated. (NAN)
