The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila has said that the house is set to unveil its legislative agenda and reforms soon.

Gbajabiamila made this known while receiving the Director-General of Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Mr Dasuki Arabi on Wednesday in Abuja.

The parliamentarian sounded warning to members of the executive that do not honour invitations to appear for public or investigative hearings.

“We are going to launch our legislative agenda and reforms in the next two weeks.

“There is a perennial problem this 9th house is going to deal with very seriously and it is the situation when the house summons a member of the executive and they do not show up.

“It does not benefit anybody, the 9th house is going to use all constitutional powers to make sure that it becomes a thing of the past.

“No democracy grows without collaboration between the legislative and the executive arms of government.

“We shall ensure that there shall be consequences when a public servant is summoned and does not show up,” he said.

Gbajababiamila, while commending the agency’s effort in the reforms so far made, said that there were much more to be done and with proper collaboration with the National Assembly to give legal backing, the reforms would stand the test of time.
