NASS: Judiciary, Legislature Will Be Free Under Tinubu – Ex-Lagos Speaker, Ikuforiji
Ahead of the May 29 transition, a former Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Adeyemi Ikuforiji, has assured that the National Assembly would be free under the administration of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Speaking against the backdrop of the National Assembly becoming a rubber-stamp, Ikuforiji said Tinubu’s administration would encourage an independent national assembly.
Appearing on Arise Television, Ikuforiji said Tinubu won’t use executive powers to muscle the judiciary and legislature.
“We are lucky as Nigerians today to have the President-elect to be the President come May 29. The legislature, the Judiciary, I can assure you will be better off for it.
“Tinubu believes in democratic norms as they are. He does not attempt to use the financial power of the executive to muscle the legislature or the judiciary.
“Under him in Lagos, the legislature thrived. Lagos House became the one that is the head and shoulder above others in the Federation,” he said.
