History was made on the floor of the House of Representatives on Thursday when the lawmakers presented 130 bills for first reading.
An elated Speaker Yakubu Dogara said it was the first of the several promises made to Nigerians during electioneering campaign.
Dogara said it has become expedient for lawmakers to take up the challenge of ensuring that the statute books are no longer subjected to wanton manipulations by the nation’s leaders.
He said: “This is the first set of the intervention bills to be presented and there are still more in my office.
“The intention is to review the statute books so that they are no longer whimsically thrown away at the whims and caprices of any leader.
“Today, we are fulfilling the promise we made to Nigerians and we are assuring them that they are going to be passed before the last quarter of next year.”
