The Act seeks to establish a National Senior Citizens Center in the country to cater for the needs of the elderly.

The presidential aide said the Legislative House Powers and Privileges Act grant the Legislative Houses in the National Assembly and State Houses of Assembly immunity from litigation for actions taken in plenary or committee proceedings of the House or committee.

He said the Act strengthens the power of the legislators to carry out their legislative functions.

The powers include powers to summon any person to appear before the Assemblies and give evidence, including power of an officer of the legislative house to arrest any person who commits an offense against the Act.

“The National Institute for Legislative Studies (Amendment) Act establishing the Institute widens her Powers to include powers to provide training courses and Award Degrees on Democracy, Party Politics, Electoral Process, Legislative Practice and Procedures among others,” he said.
