“This exercise is not meant to witch-hunt anybody, but purely for lawmakers to carry out their constitutional responsibilities to strengthen the activities of the government, enhance prudent and accountable management of resources.

“We have the constitutional mandates on oversight in order to ensure good governance in the state.

“The exercise should be carried out with all sense of seriousness regardless of any interpretation that anybody will give it,” he said.
