CHAPTER ONE

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Mc Kenna and Fleming (1977) defined committee as “A group of individuals which is formed to consider and report on various matter which have been referred to them”. At the out set it will be necessary to explain in a compendium the two major terms of the topic for better understanding. A committee can be for important issue is that it is responsible to the body, which forms it, and infact reports to at the end of its assignment.

While there is a specific connotation on the formation of committee towards the performances of an identified and specific task a meeting according to shaw et al (1965) is “An assembly of person such assembly may arise in circumstance infinitely diverse in their character and combination.From this definition, a group meeting is just a meeting of a group of people with common objective and interest; it may be a committee,The primary pre-occupation of the house of assembly anywhere is the holding of group meetings because it is only through such meeting that decisions can be reached on its varied functions.

Since the legislative time is limited matters to be deal with most of the time either technical or highly specialized, the need therefore arises to form committees to solve problems. This is exactly the case in the Anambra State House of Assembly Awka. while a body containing many members is suitable for discussing principles, it is in appropriate for the examination of details. The usual course is to form a committee of a few members in the House, which can discuss details of the proposals and report back to the full body of the house with recommendation.

The state has a brief spell of House of Assembly business and within the period, the speaker of the House of Assembly used profusely the committee and groups meetings in dealing with so many delicate and complex matters or problems. most often some matters in the House require expertise and specialist knowledge such matter wre better handled by selective committee to handle and report to the open house made up of few professional and very many generalist.
