Capacity Building of State Assemblies Members

The Legislature is an important organ in a democratic governance. In Nigeria, even though this fact has become acceptable, there has however been the absence of a productive synergy between the legislature and other organs of government especially the executive. The perception of the Legislature as an appendage of the Executive branch of government, does not address the significant role the Legislature can play in engendering a robust and productive governance system.

Consequently, with the dwindling state resources and the call for reduction of cost of governance, the Legislature deserves to understand that in carrying out its Legislative assignments of lawmaking, oversight and representation, it requires exposure into how it can adjust its modus operandi under the prevailing social and economic circumstances of the state. In other words, the State Legislatures needs to adopt creative approaches to its functions in order to ensure that the citizenry gets maximum benefit from government.
