By Umar Yakubu Ali,
Kogi State Correspondent.
The 12th Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, and Member Representing Kabba Bunu State Constituency, Rt. Hon. (Prince) Matthew Kolawole said Kogi State House of Assembly is working hard to ensure good governance in the State.
He stated this at the resumed Sitting of Thursday, November 29th, 2018 while speaking to our State Correspondent after Plenary.
He said, as lawmakers, the members of the 6th Kogi State House of Assembly, are poised to do their best in the face of the daunting tasks ahead of them, by making laws for the good governance of the State in line with the aspiration of the New Direction Administration of His Excellency, Alh. Yahaya Bello, the Executive Governor of Kogi State.
He dismissed insinuations in several quarters that the relationship between the Legislature and the Executive in the State is frosty, saying that the House, under his leadership, is enjoying a very robust working relationship in the best interest of the citizens of the State.
Rt. Hon. Kolawole said, as far as the welfare of the members was concerned, the Governor is doing his best humanly possible to ensure that every member gets his dues just as he is attending to the needs of the State Civil servants, Pensioners and the Judiciary arm of government too in the face of scarce available resources. He therefore, enjoined well meaning Kogi State indigenes to unite and work for the progress of the State and avoid creating unnecessary tension.
