“The thrust of the Agenda was, therefore, to contribute solutions to those and other challenges and restore the hope of Nigerian People in their country, and their confidence in its democratic institutions.

Lawan said the legislature in the last two years has provided some legislative intervention that has led to reforms in some key areas of the economy, such as security, constitution amendment, anti-corruption legislation, judiciary reform, electoral reforms, and socio-economic development through poverty alleviation, jobs creation, education and healthcare.

This, he said was made possible through the primary responsibility of lawmaking.
