Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Legislative Library, Research and Documentation, Hon Yusuf Shittu Galambi, has said the National Assembly Library, initiated by the 9th assembly, is ready and would be commissioned on December 16.
Galambi said this at the inaugural meeting of the committee Tuesday, as he lauded the previous assembly for initiating the construction of a befitting modern library for the foremost legislative body in Nigeria.
“The first phase of the library building is practically at the completion stage and will be commissioned on 16th December 2023 while the second phase which has to do with commissioning, equipping, furnishing and take-off is in view,” he said.
He also called for the provision of information that will also facilitate proper legislative engagement, strengthening not just resolution and bills passed by the National Assembly but can also stand the test of time.
“With these, let me also congratulate all of us for being nominated to serve in this committee. I must acknowledge the fact that our nomination to serve as members was based on our individual track records as well as experiences as spelt out in respective curriculum vitae. I therefore urge all of us to do our best by bringing in our wealth of experience to ensure that this committee succeeds,” he said.
