My Administration Is Not At Logger Heads With National Assembly - President Jonatthan

President Goodluck Jonathan says his administration is not at logger heads with the legislative Arm of government despite protracted face off between both Arms of government in recent months.

The president, who was speaking at the opening ceremony of a two day conference on Legislative - Executive relations, stated that both arms were not  in competition for power but in government to deliver good governance to the electorates.

Represented by the Vice President, the President insisted although there is a constitutional provision for separation of powers among the three arms of government, the provision of checks and balances is also in the same constitution to ensure harmony among the arms of government.

The sometimes frosty relationship between both the National Assembly and the Presidency has always been in recent times, some believe, underscores the need for this conference.

The two day conference is expected to enhance cordial relationship between members of the parliament and officials of the executive arm toward a better working environment.

Former South African Vice President and current chairperson of the African National Congress, Minority Leader of the Jamaican parliament are some of the speakers gracing the event.
