President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan has challenged those critical of the National Assembly to a debate on the relevance of the Legislature to Nigerians rather than criticizing the funding of the Assembly.
Lawan gave the challenge in Abuja on Friday, while declaring open a two-day retreat for top management staff of the National Assembly and National Assembly Service Commission.
Lawan said :
âWhat does the National Assembly mean to Nigerians what does the legislature mean to Nigerians.
â€œWe need to understand what the National Assembly or what the Legislature is to Nigerians.â€
