“Let them do the job” Tinubu urges NASS to limit summons of MDA Chiefs




President Tinubu has urged the National Assembly to be restrained in calling the leaders of ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) to appear before parliamentary committees, emphasizing that these officials should be allowed to perform their duties.

The president made this statement during the Ramadan fast-breaking event on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said to the Speaker of the House Tajudeen Abbas and other lawmakers that while oversight is important for transparency and accountability in governance, there should be caution in over-summoning officials which could disrupt operations and affect services to citizens.

Consequently, he advised the lawmakers to exercise discretion in their oversight activities.

Speaking further, the president called on the legislative members to not overlook their electoral districts and to embrace the holy month of Ramadan as a chance to express empathy and support the disadvantaged in society.

On his part, Tajudeen Abbas, the Speaker of the House noted that the executive and the legislature have continued to work in synergy for the progress of the country in the past ten months of this administration.

The Speaker emphasized the importance of forgiveness, generosity, and prayers during Ramadan and called for unity in the nation and support for President Tinubu.
