LEGISLATIVE AGENDA METER(HOR)

The Legislative Agenda Promise Tracker tracks the 50 most important promises in the Legislative Agenda Document of the 9th House of Representatives led by Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.
According to Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila the document “is a contract with the Nigerian people, against which all our efforts will be measured, and from which we must not fall short as our nation battles to emerge stronger.”
This document contains short-, medium- and long-term promises/priorities of the HoR. In tracking the promises, our reporters research the issue and then rate it based on whether the promise was achieved: Promise Kept, Promise Broken, Compromise, Stalled, In the Works or Not Yet Rated. We rate the promise not on the president's intentions or effort, but on verifiable outcomes.
