The House of Representatives has said it would continue to make legislation that would promote the unity and peace of the country.
A lawmaker representing Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency, Hon. Bamidele Baderinwa who stated this in an interview with journalists in Ero, his country home, also expressed the readiness of the Federal House of Representatives to always ensure peaceful coexistence among all Nigerians.
He noted that the legislature plays prominent roles in nation building, adding that lawmakers are duty bound to portray and protect the interest of the electorate at the National Assembly.
Hon. Baderinwa emphasized that on resumption from the recess, the legislators would be more energised and refreshed to deliver on the dividends of democracy to citizens.
“The moment we return from recess, we will be able to do more for our people that voted us and Nigeria will be better for it.
“Let me assure you that we feel the pulse of Nigerians and we will ensure that the Executive arm does the right things,” he said.
The Federal lawmaker berated the situation where hate speeches to leadership have become the order of the day in the country.
“It is not enough to start raining abuses on those at the helm of affairs, what they need is constructive criticism to aid them in doing the work of governance.
“One needs not take the leadership to the dry cleaner by embarking on hate speeches, on electronic, print and social media to drive our points home,” he asserted.
According to him, there are better ways of calling the attention of leaders to issues that bother on development of “our dear great nation”.
He promised to continuously prioritise the interest of the people in his constituency.
“I will ensure that my people get the true value of dividends of democracy they crave for, and l will not betray their trust,” he concluded.
