Ganduje canvasses Lagos-Kano legislative summit

From Maduabuchi Nmeribeh, Kano
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State on Monday underscored the need for a Lagos-Kano Legislative Summit to cement the symbiotic relationship between the two states in socioeconomic development.
Ganduje spoke during a training programme on legislative intervention in the sphere of House Rules and Proceedings, organised by the Kano State House of Assembly in collaboration with Legis 37 Nigeria, a consultancy firm owned by the former Clerk of the National Assembly, Alhaji Ibrahim Salim, held at Bafra International Hotel, Kaduna.
According to him, there was need for members of the House of Assembly of both states to come together and brainstorm on socioeconomic and political development of both states.
He said: a�?Both Assemblies have similar things in common being from the most populous states of the federation. The two Assemblies need to copy some legislative works from each other.
a�?Most of the things that Kano and Lagos states signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the just-concluded Lagos-Kano Economic Summit would need some legislative roles before they could become practical.
a�?Kano and Lagos Legislative Houses need to also synergise to come up with issue-oriented legislations that will be centred at both human and infrastructural development.
“The Kano State House of Assembly is interested in some laws of the Lagos State House of Assembly and vice versa. It is noteworthy to begin to understand that we are into serious business of good governance,a�? he stated.
Ganduje promised to do everything possible to see to the effective and efficient partnership between Kano and Lagos legislatures, noting that, “it is extremely important for both the executive and legislative arms in both states to work together for a sustainable development of our people.”
In his speech, the Speaker of the State Assembly, Alhaji Yusuf Abdullahi Ata, who was represented by his Deputy, Engr. Hamisu Ibrahim Chidari, said that “what I find even more apt and highly timely is the inclusion of the long overdue review of the Standing Rules of Kano State House of Assembly, which was last updated in 2009.a�?
