“I am happy to be here today [at] the opening [session] of ELSTLA after an overdue of recession. I want to tell you members of August House on behalf of my executive [about] the outstanding bills that I will soon present before this House for final endorsement and I will be glad for these bills endorsed into laws” he added.
