Kwara House of Assembly rejects Transition committee, gives reason

Date: 2019-04-19

Kwara State House of Assembly has rejected the request of the Transition Committee set up by the state Governor-elect, Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq, for a handover note on the activities of the Assembly.

The House on Thursday refused the request in its resolution after a two-day debate on a letter of request sent to it by the committee, NAN reports.

The Speaker, Dr Ali Ahmad, while reading the resolution, said the request for handover note of the House to the committee did not conform with democratic tenets.

Ahmad described the committee's request as "anomalous" as it amounted to setting bad precedent for the incoming lawmakers in the state.

"The Kwara State House of Assembly noted that the letter from the representatives of the incoming executive requesting for handover note or brief from the Assembly was anomalous," he said.

The speaker said that the autonomy of the legislature must be guarded, adding that to accede to the request of the transition committee would “kill the independence of the legislature".

Earlier, during debate, the members unanimously condemned the series of letters from the transition committee requesting the House to furnish it with the handover note.
