The House of Representatives Committee on Delegated Legislation chaired by Olufemi Richard Bamisile has commenced the process of strengthening subsidiary legislations emanating from government agencies and extra-ministerial departments.

The deputy chairman of the committee,  Dominic I. Okafor, who spoke at the inaugural meeting of the committee with chief executives of agencies responsible for carrying out subsidiary legislations in Nigeria, said the committee looked forward to continued collaboration with agencies responsible for delegated legislation in order to build stronger institutions in the country.

Delegated legislation refers to laws and regulations made by agencies or bodies other than the legislature which play crucial roles in effective governance by addressing details and practicalities that primary legislation may overlook.

This, the deputy chairman explained, will promote efficiency, effectiveness, and adherence to legal procedures in the legislative process.
