CMDI is a Mentoring and Leadership Centre targeted at raising new leaders and harnessing talents and potentials of young people for leadership and development.
The Centre provides training in Legislative Capacity Building for staff of the Legislative Bureaucracy as well as Legislative Aides.
With Resourceful and highly experienced Personnel who have been in the Legislative system since the return of Democracy to Nigeria in 1999, the Centre has been the repository of knowledge and pragmatic experience, guidance and roadmap for Legislative Bureaucracy and Aides in the Nigeria Legislature over time.
We hereby invite all new and returning legislators to take advantage of the CMDI platform to provide orientation and training for their new Aides.
Legislative Aides are critical factors in the success of any legislator in the National and State Houses of Assembly. They act as a strong bridge and instruments of success as they provide the busy Legislators with targeted inputs in Legislative processes of bill making, motions, contributions to plenary debates on topical issues as well as the committee system. They provide incisive support in building relationships with MDAs where Legislators exercise their oversight functions and manage Constituency Outreach programmes to engage Legislators with their constituents.
