The Director General Legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS), Professor Abubakar Sulaiman , has taken a swipe at members of the Kwara state House of Assembly over persistent absence at capacity – building workshops organised by the Institute.
Persistent absence of Kwara lawmakers from capacity – building workshops in which they are invited, came to the fore in Abuja on Monday at the opening session of a 2 – day induction workshop for members – elect of Plateau and Bauchi state Houses of Assembly.
The NILDS boss in his welcome speech, commended legislators from Plateau and Bauchi states for their impressive attendance which according to him, has never been demonstrated by their counterparts from Kwara state in anyway.
He explained to lawmakers from both states that the induction programme has been organised by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) and the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS) to enable them understand their roles, responsibilities, and the functioning of the legislature.
