The House of Representatives is seeking more liberal and equitable ways of distributing constituency projects across Nigeria.
The Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, made the call at the one-day Political Representation and Constituency Intervention Summit in Abuja.
He said that legislators have been disadvantaged in the implementation of constituency projects.
The Speaker further stated that funding was often made available to projects sited at the constituencies of those in the executive arm of government at the expense of the legislators.
On his part, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Babachir Lawal, condemned the manner at which funds meant for constituency projects were abused in the past.
In his reaction, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, urged the lawmakers to decide on a framework that would ensure that constituency projects were not viewed as individual lawmaker’s project.
