About 14 months since the inauguration of the ninth assembly, lawmakers have been striving to perform their primary duties and fulfil promises made to their constituents.
Top of the duties and promises is to make “…laws that are in the interest of Nigeria and Nigerians,” as some lawmakers, including the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, said.
This comes before any legislative duty like the oversight of Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
One major way to achieve this is by sponsoring bills and motions and also the implementation of constituency projects. Most lawmakers take pride in the number of bills, motions and constituency projects executed to uplifted members of their constituency during their tenure and many who seek re-election use it as a campaign point.
This achievement can be measured not only in the number of bills sponsored but the ‘projects executed via constituency projects.
