“The legislative arm of government is a very important part of democracy, I urge them to make legislation effective so that their constituents will be brought close to governance. They must listen very keenly to the yearnings and aspirations of the citizens, make laws that will directly affect their everyday lives and work assiduously for the growth and development of the entire state. They should also make sure they work amicably with the executive for the purpose of sustainable development, political stability and efficient service delivery to the electorates.
“The newly inaugurated members should not take their oversight function for granted even as they work hand-in-hand with the other two arms of government. They must be independent and act the traditional role of checks and balance.”
