The Benue State Governor, Hyacinth Alia on Monday, inaugurated the 10th Benue State Assembly, while calling for constructive engagements and support from the legislature and judicial arms of government to achieve set goals.

The governor, while addressing the lawmakers on the floor of the House, seeks for more collaboration with the Executive arm of government in order to help his government deliver the much expected dividends of democracy to the people of Benue.

He also assured the lawmakers of his administration’s support at all times, while urging the new legislators to be exemplary in their conduct.

The Governor said: “The legislature does not only give the people a voice in affairs of government, but provides the bedrock for the rule of law, equity and justice to reign in the polity.

“Due to the big role the legislature plays side by side with the judiciary and the executive arm of government, we are fully prepared to respect the sanctity of the doctrine of the separation of powers under a democracy.”

He pledged not to interfere with the internal affairs of the legislature especially in the election of its leadership, saying “we are prepared to meaningfully work with those who you choose to lead the House.”

While promising to support the House, Governor Alia said, “we will support the House with the training and retraining of staff of members of the House.”

He pledged that the Executive arm of government would work in harmony with the legislature and the judiciary to ensure effective service delivery to the people.
