Enugu Assembly passes 23 bills into law

At the close of the 2nd session of its 6th assembly yes­terday, the leadership of the Enugu State House of Assembly said it passed a total of 23 out of 30 bills brought on the floor of the house, and also within the period, received and passed a total of 30 resolu­tions and motions.
Speaker of the House, Hon Edward Uchenna Ubosi, who made the dis­closure in a valedictory speech to mark the end of the second session of the 6th Assembly which was first inaugurated June 8, 2015, said that they have made tremendous achieve­ments.
“During the sessions, we made a litany of achieve­ments among which are 30 bills (22 executive bills and eight member bills) out of which 23 bills were passed into law and four bills at various legislative stages while “the remaining bills are likely to be loved to death,” Ubosi disclosed.
The Speaker explained that some of the bills passed into law that have high impact on the citizens of the state include among others, the Investment and Human Development Au­thority Law, 2015; Private Partnership Law, 2016; the Land Use Charge Law, 2016; the Enugu State Reg­istered Bonds Law, 2016; the Child Rights Law, 2016 and the Administration of Criminal Justice Law, 2017.
He also explained that the 35 motions and reso­lutions passed were timely and in quick response to the yearnings of the people of the state.
Ubosi used the oppor­tunity to commend his colleagues for carrying out their oversight func­tions religiously with their various standing commit­tees, pointing out that the House committees en­gaged in regular monitor­ing of the activities of the various MDAs to ensure that “government pro­grammes were implement­ed and administered ef­ficiently, effectively and in a manner consistent with legislative intent, practice and procedure.”
