The Nigerian House of Representatives says it will step up its partnership with the Executive to introduce and support all measures designed to blossom the country’s economy.
The Speaker of the House, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, stated this while expressing happiness over the latest report released by the National Bureau of Statistics which indicates that Nigeria has finally exited recession.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media & Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan in Abuja, the Speaker, said, the House of Representatives is gladdened by the goodness of the performance of the economy in the last quarter.
He said the positive result was an indication that the economic policies of the APC administration are on track and that the task ahead is sustained efforts by both the Executive and the Legislature in fast tracking program implementation for even more rapid economic growth and development.
“We must now channel our energies towards measured aimed at job creation for the millions of our people, address the widening socio-economic inequalities and creating opportunities for all citizens and put food on the tables of all Nigerians”.
This informed the passage of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission bill which should go a long way in attracting foreign direct investment, create job opportunities for our people and provide healthy and conducive business environment for the private sector to thrive.
We will implore the President to assent to this revolutionary bill as soon as it is concurred by the Senate and transmitted to him,” the Speaker added.
