All Bills Passed in Kwara Come from Governor, not Legislators- ENetSuD
The Elites Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD), an anti-corruption Civil Society Organization promoting good governance, transparency, and accountability, has disclosed that all the nine (9) bills passed by the Kwara State House of Assembly (KWHA) in the second legislative year are sent to the Assembly by the Governor.
This was disclosed by the Coordinator of ENetSuD (Dr. Abdullateef Alagbonsi) while releasing part of the reports of #KwaraBillsTracker, an initiative of ENetSuD that monitors legislative activities in the area of lawmaking, motions, and matters of public importance considered by the KWHA.
Alagbonsi stated that none of the 9 bills was initiated or sponsored by any of the lawmakers.
He listed the 9 bills to include the Geographic Information Service Bill 2020, Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Bill 2020, Revised Appropriation Bill (Budget) 2020, Residents Registration Bill 2020, Public Procurement Agency (amendment) Bill 2020, Investment Promotion Agency 2020, Governor and Deputy Governor Payment of Pension (Repeal) Bill 2020, Appropriation (Budget) Bill 2021, and Sports Commission (Amendment) Bill 2021.
ENetSuD, therefore, advised the lawmakers to do better in the remaining two legislative years.
