“In leadership, you engage with stakeholders, including civil society organizations, the private sector, and the executive arm of government.

“What we are witnessing in the 10th House of Representatives is a testament to the power of collaborative leadership and we are proud to be part of his team,” Agbese said.

He revealed that the House has passed several notable bills, including the Electricity Act (Amendment) Bill, the Economic Diversification Bill, the National Health Insurance Act, and the Education Reform Bill.

He said, ”In the first six months, 120 bills passed the second reading stage, arguing that the bills were passed in the interest of the nation and a response to the immediate challenges confronting the nation.

“All these bills are intended to provide immediate relief and long-term solutions to the challenges that have plagued our society.
