Nigeria’s Senate President Bukola Saraki on Wednesday pleaded with the country’s citizens to contribute to the current Legislative Agenda for the eighth National Assembly which final draft is being put together.

Saraki said his decision to call on Nigerians for their contribution follows requests by Nigerians on social media regarding legislations they would want amended or introduced in the eighth Senate.

“s we put together the final draft of the Legislative Agenda that will guide our affairs during this tenure, we will like to secure the input of Nigerians into the formulation of this agenda.

“The contributions of all Nigerians will be crucial to ensuring that bills passed into law from now till 2019 will have direct and positive consequences on the lives of our people.

“As I look forward to receiving your suggestions and comments on people oriented bills, I reiterate that our major focus in the eighth Assembly is to close the gap between the legislative processes and the citizenry whose faith and trust legitimize our role as legislators.

“Our laws must serve, preserve and protect every Nigerian, regardless of his station in life,” he said in a personally signed statement.
