Bukar – Ibrahim said , “ Yesterday (Sunday ), a dinner was held in Lagos in honour of Mr Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila , representing Surulere 1 (Federal Constituency ), by the Lagos State Government and the people of his constituency.
“ It was during the dinner that the Speaker emphasised that the Ninth National Assembly will be a reformist assembly .
Part of the reforms is visiting of constituencies.
He said he would be visiting Zamfara and Borno states where, as you are all aware , there are security challenges .
“ He will visit the Internally Displaced Persons’ camps to see , first hand , what the situation is.
This is indeed historic because it is the first time a Speaker in Nigeria is making that move. So , we are very proud of him .
