Admonishing the Speaker, Okowa said: “As Speaker of the 9th Assembly, you have an enormous task of uniting the nation and bringing good governance closer to the people by galvanising the lawmakers to make life more meaningful for all Nigerians”, adding that there was much work to be done by way of legislation in the area of power supply, infrastructure and poverty alleviation.

The governor prayed God Almighty to grant the Speaker long life, good health, more wisdom and power to lead the 9th House of Representatives.
