The Leader of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ikechukwu Ezeugwu, on Monday responded to the public outcry which has trailed the amendment bill seeking pension for ex-governors and their deputies.
NDREPORTERS reports that the bill, which scaled first reading last week has been met with backlash from residents and beyond.
Addressing the public concerns, Ezeugwu in a statement he personally signed, said the House would do the needful by the next plenary in response to the yearnings of the people.
He said though the bill was in accordance with the constitutional mandate of House, it would not do anything that would work against the desire and wish of the people.
“Enugu State House of Assembly remains committed to the discharge of its duties. The House is also sensitive to the feelings of our people and therefore appreciates the feedback and reactions from our Constituents and the public. This is the beauty of democracy and as representatives, we will not disappoint our people.
“Enugu State of Assembly therefore assures our people that the House will follow due process and do the needful during the next plenary,” Ezeugwu stated
