Alhaji Alhassan Ado Doguwa, said: “As I rise to do this, I want to put on record that this House takes seriously the issue of working together with the Senate for maximum performance.


“That is why this House has always given speedy consideration to bills passed by the Senate. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same thing about the Senate.


“We have quite a number of bills passed by this House which are still lying on the table of the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Rules and Business unattended to. This is a thing of concern to the leadership of this House.”
