These he said include strengthening good governance, economic development, improving national security, law reform, economic growth and development, social sector reform and development, inclusion and open parliament, influencing foreign policy and climate change, and environmental sustainability.

The President of the Senate Godswill Akpabio lauded the House for leading the way in unveiling its legislative agenda, promising that the Senate would ensure it does not depart from the agenda of the House.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume said for any democratic system of governance to thrive there must be in existence a focused and forward-looking legislature.
