Speaker commended for harmony in Delta Assembly

29 February 2016, 17:23

Johannesburg - In a show of political maturity, an official from the Labour Party lauded progress made in the Delta Sate House of Assembly under the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Member representing Ethiope East Constituency in the House of Assembly, Evance Ivwurie, attributed this to the leadership qualities of Speaker Monday Igbuya, describing him as “an inspiring and magnetic political figure.”

“I will describe Igbuya as a democrat in our hallowed Chamber and in leadership. He is a team player. He is a very energetic, hard-working, disciplined, committed and very effective law-maker. Rather than deny any member of his or her right, he fights for and protects the rights of every member daily,” Ivwurie said in Asaba.

He said his relationship with Igbuya as someone elected from a different political party from that the Speaker was bipartisan, friendly, mutually respectable and cordial.

“Mr. Speaker finds common ground through compromise in legislation with opposing political parties. He does not adhere only to his political party interest,” said Ivwurie.

“He does not advance his own political party agenda unduly in the exercise of his duty as Speaker at the expense of the other political party because of conflicting ideologies.”

The Speaker is bipartisan as been reflected in all of the bills, acts, resolutions and policies the House has dealt with, the opposition party member said.

This, Ivwuries said, ensured there was no cynicism and gridlock in the Delta State political and economic system.

“It has been a strong spirit of Delta State first, bipartisanship and hard-work. I can assure you that Speaker Igbuya is always looking out for the best interests of Delta State.”
