A group known as Coalition of Indigenous Groups for Renewed Hope in Nigeria has commended Tajudeen Abbas, speaker of the house of representatives, for taking actions to restore public trust in the parliament.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, Lawrence Ngege, convener of the group, said the house of representatives led by Abbas is transparency by calling for inputs of Nigerians into the 2024 budget proposal. 

Ngege said Abbas’ “dedication to transparency, accountability, and inclusivity” is “evident in every decision and action taken” by the house of representatives.

“Speaker Abass has demonstrated a deep understanding of the challenges facing our nation and has shown remarkable courage in tackling them head-on,” he said.


“His ability to unite members of the house, regardless of political affiliations, is a testament to his strong leadership qualities.

“We applaud his efforts in fostering a conducive environment for robust debates and discussions which have contributed to the formulation of sound policies and legislations for the betterment of our society.

“The proactive measures taken by the house in handling the budget have resulted in the timely implementation of critical projects, the provision of essential services, and the empowerment of our citizens.”


He also commended Abubakar Bichi, chairman of the house committee on appropriations, for “diligently” working with his colleagues to ensure “accountability and transparency” in the budget process.

“Bichi’s commitment to transparency and accountability in the budgetary process has restored faith in the ability of the government to manage public funds effectively,” Ngege added.

Ngege said Bichi’s “proactive approach in engaging with stakeholders and ensuring that their voices are heard” will contribute to the formulation of a budget that “truly reflects the needs and aspirations of our diverse nation”.

He noted that said this will not only enhance accountability but will foster public trust and confidence in the legislative process.
