ABIA STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY APPOINTS STANLEY NWABUISI CHAIRMAN WOMEN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE, PASSES FIRST BILL
ABIA STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY APPOINTS STANLEY NWABUISI
Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia.
Abia state House of Assembly on Tuesday inaugurated various committees that would function in the current dispensation.
The 24 member legislature being all male listed Hon. Stanley Nwabuisi as the house committee chairman in charge of women affairs.
Many had wondered how the legislature will constitute the membership of the committee on Women Affairs giving that no woman was elected into the 7th assembly in the last elections.
The ruling PDP in the state did not have any female candidate before the election and the political parties which fielded women as candidates were unsuccessful.
Hon. Blessing Nwagba was the committee chairman of women affairs in the 6th Assembly.
The house also made some amendments in the committee by including health as part of the committee which had hitherto been identified as individual committees.
The House for the first time since its inauguration in June passed a bill into law known as “Abia State House of Assembly Commission Bill” (HAB1).
The law seeks among other things, financial autonomy for the State House of Assembly and strengthening of democratic principles.
The House Speaker, Rt. Hon. Engr. Chinedum Orji, presided over the plenary.
The Speaker assured that the house will give adequate serious attention to their oversight functions to assist the workings of the government, adding they do not plan to victimize or blackmail any agency of government as has been insinuated in some quarters.
He advised house members to ignore threats meant to intimidate them in the discharge of their duties.
He pledged total commitment in giving the governor legislative backing to provide dividends of democracy to the masses.
After announcing the committees with their various chairmen and members, who will in the coming days carry out oversight functions, the house adjourned sitting till the 23rd day of September 2019.
The house adjourned plenary to reconvene on Monday the 23rd day of September, 2019 by 10:00am.
