The Speaker, Right Honourable Sheriff Oborevwori, while welcoming his colleagues to the Hallow Chambers, stated that the House would insist on accountability, probity, transparency and efficiency in the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the 2021 budget.

Right Honourable Oborevwori maintained that the 7th Assembly must always stick to the task of delivering democratic dividends to the people.

He charged the Lawmakers to be alive to the demands of their office because of the critical and congested legislative timetable of the Assembly, pointing out that the task before it was enormous, but not insurmountable.

The Speaker recalled that the Assembly had at the end of the year 2020, passed seventeen Bills, out of which sixteen had been assented to by the Governor.

He commended members for their exemplary commitment, patriotism and conduct in the face of various daunting challenges in the year 2020, particularly with the outbreak of the ravaging COVID-19. 

Right Honourable Oborevwori affirmed that members of the State Assembly have a duty to diligently observe the safety protocols and guidelines as prescribed by the Federal and State Governments.
