Federal Executive Council FEC looks into National Assembly conflicts
The Federal Executive Council FEC has initiated a move that will look into issues surrounding the National Assembly and the Executive Arm of Government.
Vice President Yomi Osinbajo will be the chairman of the committee while
former law makers serving at the cabinet will serve as members.
The minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Lai Mohammed told the newsmen on Wednesday that the Executive is concerned about the relationship with legislature. He called on both arms of government to strive in all times to ensure checks and balances.
Meanwhile, the speaker of the house of representatives Yokubu Dogara says the current face-off between the executive and the legislature is normal in a democratic government. He says conflicts are normal parts of human existence and can be found even within the family unit.
The speaker said to achieve innovation and progress, people must be free to disagree and that the most important thing is for leaders of all arms of
Government to interpret the issues so they could lead to the nations progress. Adding that the house has always being supportive of the executive arm and has always overcome differences to ensure passage of key legislation in the interest of the country.
Dogara said the APC government has not disappointed Nigeria as it strives to meet expectations especially in tackling corruption and restoring security in the North-East. He said political leaders must realize that Nigerians made a lot of sacrifice to ensure the enthronement of the current government, so they must deliver on the promises made to the people.
