Member representing Mushin Federal Constituency 1 in the House of Representatives, Hon Taofik Adeyemi has been speaking on his experience in the House of Representatives since his assumption of office in June, 2019.
Hon Alli, former Chairman of Odiolowo/Ojuwoye Local Council Development Area, told The Gazelle News in his office in Abuja that coming from the Executive arm of government, he has been able to acquaint himself creditably in the House.
“Coming into the House, I know the challenges and I made up my mind to do everything legally possible to surmount the challenges.
“I did not shy away from interacting with my colleagues especially the ranking members and I am somebody who is ready to learn and acquire more knowledge. This has assisted me a lot and I must say that I have settled down quickly to the business of the House,” he told The Gazelle News.
Indeed, The Gazelle News can report that Alli has been able to acquaint himself well. This medium can report that the Constituency he is representing has been noted for its legislative backwardness in the House previously.
“In the past, nothing has been known about the Constituency in the House because its representative had been inactive on the floor of the House,” an observer of events in the House told this medium on Friday, 29 November, 2019.
Yemi Alli since his assumption of duty, has been an active participant in the Hallowed Chamber and has been one of the most active discussants of motions and Bills in the House.
Not only that, he has solely moved two motions which have been discussed and passed as resolutions of the House while some are in the process of being presented on the floor of the House.
To date, motions moved by Alli that have been discussed and passed as resolutions of the House are: Urgent Needs To Stop Ilupeju Industrial Hub From Collapsing; and the Urgent Need To Make Artisans More Effective and Productive In Nigeria.
Apart from these, he has also been co-sponsor of several other motions while also being active discussant on the floor of the House.
Alli is the Vice Chairman of the Political Party Affairs Committee of the House while he is a member of the following committees: Aviation, Finance, ICT, Rural Development/Privatisation and Commercialisation among others.
