She said: “I really want to thank the Speaker of the House, Rt Hon. Yakubu Dogara for handling the 8th House of Representatives very well.
“I think himself and the Chairman of the National Assembly, Dr. Bukola Saraki did a good job, and there was synergy between the two legislative Houses.
“And I know because of the synergy, we had more bills passed. About 300 bills were passed by this assembly compared to other ones.
