The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the National Assembly and State Houses of Assembly for their resilience in enhancing the country’s democratic practice as consolidated by successive PDP Administrations.

It commended the legislature for the successful amendment of the country’s Constitution

It advised the Presidency not to appropriate the achievements of the National Assembly as those of President Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria.

The party decried the recent attempt by the Presidency to ascribe credit to Buhari for the recent amendments to the Constitution, particularly the granting of financial autonomy to state house of assembly and the judiciary.

According to it, neither the Presidency nor the President himself made any input in support of the amendments.

“It is instructive to note that none of the amendments stem from any Executive bill.
