Under his leadership, the Abia State House of Assembly passed the 2020 and 2021 Budgets right in time before the beginning of the New Year, for the first time in the history of the State, thereby giving the Executive Arm the impetus to implement its vision without any hinderance.

The 7th Abia State House of Assembly is also the first House of Assembly in the entire federation to pass the Diaspora Commission Law thereby drawing global accolades including from The Presidency.

The Speaker also ensured that the House passed into Law the financial autonomy bills for both the legislature and the judiciary to further deepen practice of democratic principles in the state.

These and many more of such people-oriented Bills and Motions are why the 7th Abia State House of Assembly is called an “Assembly of Many Firsts”.
