OrderPaper Nigeria, a media organisation dedicated to reporting parliamentary affairs, on Sunday, inducted five lawmakers into the most valuable parliamentarian (MVP) hall of fame.

The lawmakers were unveiled and inducted at the “Night of Glamour”, an event organised to honour high-performing lawmakers in the national assembly, in Abuja.

The lawmakers who made the hall of fame are Samuel Onuigbo, representing Umuahia north/ Umuahia south/ Ikwuano federal constituency of Abia; Mohammed Monguno, representing Monguno/Marte/Nganzai federal constituency of Borno; Yahaya Oloriegbe, representing Kwara central senatorial district; Uba Sani, representing Kaduna central senatorial district; and Yahaya Abdullahi, representing Kebbi north senatorial district

Onuigbo was honoured for sponsoring four pieces of legislation, including the climate change bill which was assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari in November 2021.


Monguno was inducted for sponsoring several bills including the Nigerian law reform commission act (Amendment) bill, export prohibition act (repeal) bill, constitution amendment bills, and digital rights and freedom bill, among others.

Yahaya Oloriegbe was recognised for sponsoring 15 bills out of which three have been signed into law.

Sani, who is the governor-elect of Kaduna, was inducted for sponsoring 31 bills including the Banks and Other Financial institutions act 2004 (repeal and re-enactment) bill and the asset management corporation of Nigeria act (amendment) bill.


Yahaya Abdullahi has seven bills to his credit.

Speaking at the event, Oke Epia, chief executive officer of OrderPaper, said the lawmakers were assessed according to what the data showed.

He said OrderPaper is committed to strengthening and promoting improved service delivery in the national assembly by identifying performance-driven legislators.

Lawmakers who made the semi-finalists list were also recognised and issued a certificate of performance.


Also speaking, the Kaduna governor-elect said by recognising the lawmakers who have done well, others would be spurred to follow suit.

“National assembly is the heart of democracy, and that is where you have people’s representatives. You should also consider those who have done well in the aspect of representation of their constituencies,” he said.

“The core functions of the lawmakers are lawmaking, constituency representation, and oversight activities. OrderPaper should also focus on lawmakers who are doing wonderful works at the constituency level.”
