Fifth Bayelsa Assembly Passes 105 Bills In Four Years

                                

Benson Kombowei, Speaker of the 24-member Bayelsa State House of Assembly, said on Monday that the Fifth Legislature, under his leadership, passed a total of 105 bills within four years.

He stated this on Monday during a valedictory session held for outgoing lawmakers at the Assembly Complex in Yenagoa to officially mark the end of the Fifth Legislature, which began in 2015.

Kombowei said that out of the 105 bills passed, 92 were Executive bills while 13 were privately-sponsored bills.

He attributed the legislative successes recorded by the House to the harmonious relationship that existed between the legislative and Executive arms of the government.

The outgoing Speaker commended Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson, for his support to the House and appealed to him to extend same to the in-coming Sixth Assembly.

In his remarks, Governor Dickson, who proclaimed the dissolution of the Fifth Assembly, commended the outgoing lawmakers for their cooperation and understanding during the past years.

He noted that the legislators had “an eventful and impactful legislative session”, stressing that the Executive arm was deeply encouraged by their positive disposition towards the development of Bayelsa.

Dickson said the relationship between the Executive and legislative arms were devoid of rancour and acrimony due to the excellent leadership of the House.

He said: “On behalf of the Executive arm, on behalf of the government and all the good people of our great state, I would like to communicate our collective appreciation and gratitude to the Speaker and leadership of the House and, indeed, all members for having an eventful, impactful legislative session that is ending today.”
