The job of Nigerian legislators as enshrined in Section 58(1) of the 1999 Constitution, provides that, “the power of the National Assembly to make laws shall be exercised by bills passed by both the Senate and the House of Representatives”.

The Deputy President of the Senate, who is also Delta State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has shown that being a presiding officer is not an excuse for not sponsoring bills in the legislature.

Between the eighth and ninth Assembly (2015 to 2019 and 2019 to 2023), Obarisi Omo-Agege has to his credit over 40 bills. Some are already yielding fruits like those of the Federal Polytechnic, Orogun; and the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun; while others are either awaiting concurrence from the House of Representatives or transmitted to Mr President for assent.

The Delta Central lawmaker remains the first South-South senator with the most number of bills (20) sponsored at midterm of the ninth National Assembly as well as the top five senator with the most number of bills sponsored (20) within the same period.

The ranking lawmaker also co-sponsored the all-important Electoral Act, which pundits have described as not only a game changer in our elections but also one of the greatest legacies of the Buhari administration.

  I present to you the 40 bills sponsored by Senator Omo-Agege from 2016 when he debuted in the Red Chamber till now:

1. Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun (Establishment, etc) Bill, 2016 (SB 226)
