Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has stated that the National Assembly and legislature in other parts of the world is the most misunderstood organ of government.
He explained that this is why the Committee on Media and Public Affairs is critical to the House for enlightening the public on its activities.
Gbajabiamila made this known in Abuja on Monday at the opening of a two-day capacity-building workshop for the committee.
He noted that the committee plays a major role in the activities of the House as it is the intermediary between the lawmakers and the public.
He added that that committee’s work goes a long way in shaping the perception that the public has of the House and correcting any misinformation that is in the public sphere.
