9th National Assembly performed credibility well – Lawan



President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan says the 9th National Assembly has performed credibility well in terms of delivering democratic dividends to Nigerians since its inauguration in 2019.


Lawan said this in his goodwill message to the Nigerian workers in Abuja.


“By 2019 when the 9th assembly was inaugurated, the nation’s financial year or budget cycle had become notorious for being unreliable and uncertain.


“To redress that situation, the 9th assembly in collaboration with the executive arm of government, reset the financial year to run from January to December.


“Since then, this has been sustained, resulting in significant improvement in budget performance,” he said.


Lawan said the 9th assembly had successfully passed many critical bills that had become jinxed under the previous assembly.


He listed such critical legislations that were key to good governance and service delivery in the public sector, including the deep offshore and inland basin production sharing contracts (amendment) act, 2019, amongst others.
