Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has charged the National Assembly to enact quality legislation that would enhance good governance in the country.
He gave the charge when the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Yakubu Dogara paid him a courtesy call at the Benue State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja yesterday.
Governor Ortom listed critical areas of immediate concern as corruption, power supply and security stressing that if legislation is targeted at these areas and enforced the nation would make a quantum leap forward.
He appealed to the Speaker to put the intrigues that led to his emergence behind him and build bridges between the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its members as well as others in the house.
Governor Ortom described Rt. Hon Iorwase Hembe, member representing Vandeikya/Konshisha federal constituency who led the delegation to see him as a worthy ambassador of the state who had the vision to identify and invest in the leadership qualities of the Speaker.
The former Minister of State, Industry, Trade, and Investment, described Rt. Hon Dogara as a humble man and urged him to sustain the virtue in his relationship with members.
Earlier the Speaker had appealed to the Governor to invest in building people as that was the most lasting legacy that a leader could leave behind.
He expressed appreciation to Ortom for his support and that of the members of the House from the state which he said contributed to his emergence as Speaker and urged the Governor to put landmark development projects on ground in line with the APC manifesto so that friends and well wishers could come to Benue State to celebrate with him.
Rt. Hon Dogara urged leaders of the party to eschew the current bickering and hit the ground running in the provision of democracy dividends to the electorate who voted for change.
