ABUJA-Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has said that more enlightenment was needed for many Nigerians on the core functions of members of the National Assembly.
He said that many people compare the executive arm to the legislature whose mandate was to make laws for the country.
Speaking when he received the leadership of the Centre for Legislative Engagement headed by Prof Attahiru Jega, former Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the Speaker said apart from the constitutional roles of lawmaking, representation and oversight that lawmakers have, Nigerians expected them to also perform executive functions.
