A bill seeking to establish the National Assembly Budget and Research Office (NABRO) has scaled the crucial second reading in the Senate.

The bill, entitled National Assembly Budget and Research Office Establishment Bill 2014, was forwarded to the Senate from the House of Representatives after it was approved in 2014.

Leading the debate on the general principles and merit of the proposed agency, the Senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, said the legislature had always been the first casualty in any military interregnum in democracy, which stunted growth and development of the institution.

The legislature, according to him, “is in dire need of institutional capacity and manpower development.”

The Senate leader maintained that appropriations is a special function of the Parliament as provided for in Sections 80 & 81 of the Constitution and that, “as representatives of the people in whose hands the control of public funds lies, there’s need to be well-informed, not only by executive justifications of its proposal but from other independent and credible sources backed by law.”

The NABRO, according to the National Assembly, is already in existence and functioning and what is required now is to give it legal backing. “What is needed now is its recognition as a legal body to enable it be as independent in its activities as the name implies and receive the cooperation of other legal entities in the course of its work.”
