10th House vibrant despite high turnover – Reps

Members of the 10th House of Representatives said they had done well since its inauguration in June despite the high turnover of new lawmakers, about 80 per cent.

The House spokesperson and chairman, Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Akin Rotimi Jnr and others made the remark at a press briefing on Friday.

In his remarks, Rep Rotimi said the House anchored its communication on transparency, engagement and accessibility.

He defended the creation of 137 standing committees by the House, which he said was to meet the current realities and make their work easier rather than political patronage.
