The Speaker, House of Representative, Honorable  Aminu Tambuwal has said that no amount of blackmail or intimidation would prevent the House from going ahead with the Oil Subsidy Report.

The Speaker who announced this while declaring open the Delta State House of Assembly Public Lecture to mark its first anniversary in Asaba, the Delta state capital, said those found wanting would be held accountable for their actions.

He assured Nigerians that irrespective of the present diversionary tactics of some people, the House will stand firm and the report would be implemented.

Honourable Tambuwal noted that it was unfortunate that people would go to any length to make Nigerians lose confidence in the report, but he gave the assurance that the House was irrevocably committed to making sure the report is implemented.

The Speaker used the occasion to call for working synergy between the legislature and executive saying; it was only through that process Nigerians would enjoy dividends of democracy.

He stressed the need for the three arms of government to be mutually complimentary and accord each other the required degree of respect to ensure that the welfare of citizens and their living standard form the nucleus of all policies and programmes.
