The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has announced that President Bola Tinubu will commission N30 billion worth of developments at the National Assembly complex in December of this year.

While meeting with the chairman and members of the governing board of NASC over the weekend, Akpabio revealed the commissioning of the projects being undertaken within the National Assembly premises.

The entire National Assembly compound is like a construction site right now, he said, because of ongoing general repair work and new projects that will be commissioned by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in December.

The National Assembly Service Commission’s permanent offices and an appropriate library complex are being constructed as part of the ongoing renovations.

The 9th National Assembly allocated N30 billion to the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) for the execution of the project, but as of March this year, only N9 billion had been released to contractors handling the project.

The Senate President told NASC chairman Ahmed Kadi Amshi that the September deadline for the documentation of legislators’ legislative assistants will be met in response to Amshi’s request.

Amshi addressed the Senate President and other top officials of the Red Chamber, informing them that the deadline for the documentation of the 469 federal parliamentarians’ assistants has been set for the end of September this year.

He said that the legislative aides’ paperwork is required so that they might receive their due compensation.

“Your Excellency, Mr. President of the Senate, we ask that you help us spread the word to the sitting senators, and by extension, the honorable members of the 10th National Assembly, that they must provide us with the names of their designated legislative aides so that we may complete the necessary paperwork and make the necessary payments each month.

According to the NASC chairman, “the commission has opened relevant files for this purpose and fixed September this year as the deadline.”

Over the past three years, the commission he chairs has promoted 2,775 workers, converted another 447 from one cadre to another, and established a code of ethics to guide employees’ daily actions.
