Osinbajo-led executive-legislative committee begins work

 The Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo-led Executive/ Legislative/Party Consultative Committee set up recently by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.),
had its inaugural meeting on Thursday.

The meeting was held at the Vice-President’s wing of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement qouted the Vice-President as saying that “the effective commencement of the committee’s assignment is the beginning of a more fruitful and cordial relationship among the different structures of the executive, legislative arms of government and the ruling party.”

The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, told journalists at the end of the meeting that the committee’s focus is to enhance proper coordination between the party and the various arms of government for the purpose of effective implementation of programmes for Nigerians.

He said, “The legislature, the executive arm of government and the party (platform on which the legislative and executives arms, today are on) are all together in this committee, trying to shape very strategic means of delivering services to the Nigerian people.


“We want to ensure that there is good governance continuously for the entire period of our tenure and subsequent years that we will be in government, by the grace of God.”

“This first meeting was to look at those critical areas that we need to concentrate and focus on how to ensure that we improve on the way and manner by which we deliver services to the Nigerian people, either as an executive arm of government or even the legislature.



“And, of course, the party is our veritable platform and vehicle for ensuring that this government implements the party manifesto to the letter.”
