Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, Thursday affirmed that the House will not relent in its efforts at tackling corruption and bad leadership in the country.
Tambuwal made the pledge when South-east leaders under the auspices of South-east Peoples Assembly paid him a courtesy visit at the National Assembly.
The delegation which was led by Chief Mbazulike Amaechi included Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Dr. Walter Ofonagoro, Prof. Anya O. Anya, Senator Sylvanus Ngele, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Comrade Peace Obiajulu, and a host of others.
Tambuwal received the delegation alongside the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha. The leadership of the House later held a closed door session with the visitors.
Mbazulike commended the leadership of the House for the effective manner they championed the battle against corruption in the oil sector and urged them to remain consistent.
In his remarks at the opening session, Tambuwal challenged political office holders to be fair and equitable in the discharge of their responsibilities.
He also enjoined them to re-examine themselves and their activities with a view to ensuring that the benefits of democracy get to all Nigerians.
Tambuwal disclosed that the House was being driven by the zeal to ensure that the dividends of democracy trickle down to the citizenry.
