Abia State House of Assembly has passed three bills aimed at ensuring security and economic development.
The bills are the Abia State Small and Medium Scale Enterprises Commission Law, the Close Circuit Television, (CCTV) Law and the Abia State Examination Development Commission Law.
In an interview with journalists after passing the bills, the Speaker, Mr. Chikwendu Kalu, explained that one of the agenda of the present administration in the state was to strengthen trade and commerce through the creation of enabling environment.
Mr. Kalu noted that the House of Assembly would continue to establish platform that would enable government to implement most of its policies and programmes geared towards the development of the state.
He expressed optimism that the Abia State Small and Medium Scale Enterprises Commission Law and the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) Law would help the government to realize its objective in the Enyimba Economic City project as well as assist security agencies to checkmate criminal activities in the state.
