Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives has launched the Legislative Mentorship Initiative (LMI) to prepare young Nigerians for legislative business.

The speaker unveiled the initiative at the book titled “Mr Speaker” written in his honour, marking his 60th birthday in Abuja on Sunday.

He said the initiative is to provide a platform to train young Nigerians on the rudiments of legislative business.

Mr Gbajabiamila said the initiative was necessitated by the need to develop a pipeline of successors that will sustain the legislative agenda for the country.

“A nation is principally rated by its legislative efficiency and effectiveness. Inability to prepare successors is a major problem to our democracy,” he said.

The speaker gave a further explanation saying the program would operate under two major focus – fellowship and associate programs for youth between the ages of 21-35.

He said the fellowship is expected to admit 74 fellows and 36 associates from the thirty-six states of the federation and Abuja, the federal capital territory (FCT) annually.

The legislators also said the two fellows from each state will be equal between the male and female genders. 

He added that application into the fellowship has commenced, and appealed to persons living with disability (PWDs) to apply.
