He said that the move was to enable the legislature to function more effectively and efficiently.
He stressed that the executive arm of government in Kaduna state had always been supporting the legislature.
Gov. El-Rufai said the agitation by states Houses of Assembly for financial autonomy was “a welcome development.
The governor said that governments must develop the legislature and this could only be done through better funding and sharing of ideas.
He said the Kaduna conference would enable all states assemblies’ service commissions to brainstorm and proffer better strategies to support the legislature.’’
“I call on my colleague governors not to be scared of anything but to do what is right and things will work better in the interest of everyone. We are elected to serve the public and not to protect our personal interests,’’ El-Rufai stressed. (NAN)
