Just 12 Ex­ec­u­tive Bills in 3 Years


Twelve Ex­ec­u­tive Bills in three years. Yes, that’s all the Ex­ec­u­tive arm of gov­ern­ment at the fed­eral level has to show for over three years in gov­ern­ment, yet, it claims to be pas­sion­ate about the so­cio-eco­nomic turn­around of this trou­bled coun­try. These bills, apart from the statu­tory bud­getre­lated ones, were sent to the Na­tional As­sem­bly at the rate of four per year. Of all the 12 bills pre­sented by the Ex­ec­u­tive in three years, only two are linked to the anti-graft chant that brought the Buhari- gov­ern­ment into of­fice on May 29, 2015. It is ob­vi­ous that the fed­eral gov­ern­ment has been very busy fight­ing a skewed cor­rup­tion war in­stead of com­ing up with bills that will help over­haul the sys­tem and ac­tu­alise its promised change. What a coun­try!
