President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday set up a cabinet committee aimed at improving the relationship between the executive and legislative arms of government.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this to State House correspondents after the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
He said, “The executive is also concerned that the relationship between the two arms of government is not as smooth as it is supposed to be.
“In any democracy, it is a continuous struggle for balancing between the Executive and the Legislature because each of them are creatures of the law.
“We must strive at all times to ensure that there is that balance, amity and smooth relationship.
“Just today at the Federal Executive Council meeting, the issue was discussed and a committee is already working on ensuring that we resolve all these outstanding issues.”
Giving further insight into the composition of the committee, Mohammed said it would be chaired by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
He added that all ministers who were, at a time, members of the National Assembly are members of the committee.
He said the two Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang (Senate); and Samaila Kawu (House of Representatives) are also members.
Mohammed also said ministers who have personal relationships with the federal lawmakers were also co-opted into the committee.
It was learnt that the committee members met briefly after the FEC meeting at the Vice-President’s office.
