COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURE, LIVESTOCK AND FISHERIES
Parliamentary committees are a vital organ in the working of the legislatures. Without the committee’s proceedings of a Legislature could grind to a halt because of the huge volume of activities.
So as to reduce the work load of the house duties as divided by the speaker.
Committees are agents, which enable Legislatures to organize their work in such a way as to perform numerous activities simultaneously and expeditiously.
Some of the committee duties include but not limited to
(i) Reviewing legislation;
(ii) Reviewing and approving the budget ;
(iii) Scrutinizing governance activities,
(iv) Conducting investigations ;
(v) Vetting and approving executive appointments;
