Delta arms of government enjoy pleasant ties

23 December 2015, 16:28Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Monday Igbuya, has welcomed the cordial relations between the local legislature and executive.

He said this arms of government had continued to enjoy a harmonious relationship, which hads translated to the rapid development of the state.

“The bitterness that has pervaded the passing of State Appropriation bills and other bills as experienced in some states has been clearly absent in Delta State,” Igbuya said in Asaba during an interactive session with key local government functionaries in the state.

The State Appropriation bill, which requires government to pass its budget through the local houses of assembly, has set the two arms of government on a collision course in some states.

To maintain the cordial relation in Delta State, Igbuya said there should be direct interactions between the legislature and executive arms of government even as each arm operated strictly within its constitutional provisions and boundaries.

“Sufficient information, consultation and effective communication should exist between the legislature and the executive arms of government, particularly in the area of government finances and spending, so as to guide against unsettling perceptions and wrong analysis of government programs, especially in the areas of legislative oversight,” he advised.

Igbuya noted that in 2015, ‘in a short space of time’, the Delta State House of Assembly successfully passed the Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency Law, Delta State Technical and Vocational Education Board Law and the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Law.

The Delta State Appropriation (Amendment) Bill and the Delta State Contributory Health Commission Bill are waiting for assent.
