The Abi Legislative House has assured the Executive arm of the council of a friction free regime in the affairs of the council area.
The leader of the Abi Legislative House Hon Pastor Joshua Akali Igboke gave the assurance recently in a chat with newsmen in his office in Itigidi, the council headquarters.
Hon Akali who stressed the importance of cooperation in moving the affairs of the local government forward, averred that the Executive would always be given accelerated consideration especially on issues bothering on the development of the Local Government Area.
While insisting that the House would not act as a rubber stamp to the Executive, Hon Akali maintained that the Legislature would not condone Executive excesses or imprudence as the House was poised to carry out its statutory role of ensuring that the activities of the Executive arm were checked in a manner that would be rancor free.
The Leader further assured the Chairman of Council Hon. Mrs Edith Amadi of maximum cooperation and support of the House, submitting that it was the responsibility of the Legislature to ensure the success of the Executive while not compromising the tenets of the separation of powers as doing so would have a negative effect on governance.
He commended the Chairman for successfully inaugurating the Council Executive Committee which he charged to always consider first the overall good of the people of Abi in the discharge of their responsibilities.
Hon Akali reminded the executive members that they were appointed to serve the interest of the Abi people who made it possible for the present council administration under the leadership of Hon Mrs Amadi to come on board through their votes.
