A member representing Egor/Ikpoba-Okha Federal Constituency of Edo State in the House of Representatives, Jim Adun, has reacted to proceedings in the ongoing National Conference, stating that it will not see the light of the day.
Honorable Adun, a two-time house of Representative member, expressed deep reservations about the Confab, adding that it will be a slap on the National Assembly to adopt proceedings from a body not elected by the people, to be passed into law
He said whereas members of the National Assembly were elected by the people to represent them and make laws for the good governance of the people, it will be according to him ‘foolhardy’, to think that proceedings from the conference will be adopted.
Adun, who is seeking to represent Edo South Senatorial District under the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC), said “I am one individual who is against the national conference. It is an exercise in futility. How do you get unelected people to waste public resources and make recommendations for us to pass into law”.
He continued: “We must face the truth. We have weak persons in government if you can shut down the state and National Assemblies and let us go and have a National Conference”.
Speaking on his senatorial ambition Adun said “we have taken cue from the state and the challenge before us is to improve on what then state governor has done. We have achieved a lot in the House of Representatives in terms of bringing to our people dividends of democracy to our people”.
