I’ve Complained To Speaker, House Of Reps, To Let The Poor Breathe – Tinubu

“I have been watching various committees summoning ministers and heads of agencies. I have complained to the Speaker to let the poor breathe. Let these people do the job. We are not saying that you are not influential.
“We are not saying you cannot do your oversight. “But consider the primary duty of each agency, its personnel, or the responsibilities of the Governor of the Central Bank or the Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance to you and the entire nation.”
These were the complaints laid before the leadership of the Federal House of Representatives, by President Bola Tinubu, when he hosted them, including Speaker Abbas, to breaking of Ramadan Fast, at the presidential villa last night, March 20.
The President specifically appealed to members of the National Assembly to exercise restraint in summoning heads of ministries, departments and agencies before parliamentary committees for questioning.
The President acknowledged the oversight duties of the legislature which he said is essential for maintaining transparency and accountability in governance, saying however that excessive summoning of officials can disrupt operations and hinder service delivery to citizens.
”If they are distracted or disturbed, maybe we will shift parliamentary sitting all through the night. We must find a way to accommodate one another. This is an appeal to you.
“See if you can accept representatives in some instances or even documentations.”
