We are going to discuss the content of this Bill on a later date. I can assure you that, it is a powerful Bill that will erase organizational impunity and duplicity of regulations. Case in point is the "Park and Pay" Federal Capital Territory Regulation; This Bill seeks to protect such regulations and ensure subsidiary legislation are in conformity with the National Assembly Act establishing the organization issuing such regulations.
Prevention is always better than mitigation
