Ahmad Lawan, President of the Senate, has said the ninth National Assembly will not fail President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in achieving a better, prosperous and secured Nigeria.
The Senate President made this known in a statement issued by his spokesman, Ola Awoniyi.
He gave the assurance in his native home, Gashua, late Tuesday at a Town Hall meeting to end a thank-you visit to his constituents in Yobe State.
He also assured Nigerians that despite the presence of the opposition in the federal parliament, the All Progressives Congress dominated chambers and would always do everything necessary to support Buhari’s programmes and policies.
He said, “Although there are pockets of opposition from other sides, I assure you all that we won’t fail the President.
“We will make sure the ninth National Assembly gives him (Buhari) the full support needed to achieve the Next Level agenda in the interest of our people and the country.”
Lawan who returned to Abuja on Wednesday assured Nigerians that his colleagues at the National Assembly will endeavour to give good representation to achieve the set agenda.
He noted that regardless of the fact that he got 79 votes out of 107 votes cast by senators during the Senate presidency election, the entire senate would support him to provide good leadership in the interest of the nation.
