The President of the 9th Senate, Ahmed Lawan has assured that the senate under his watch will move fast to cover lost grounds and see to the quick actualization of peoples oriented programs and projects of President Mohammadu Buhari
The new Senate President said this on Friday while speaking with State House Correspondents after observing the Jumaat Prayers with the President at the State House Mosque.
According to Lawan, “the expectations from Nigerians is a National Assembly that is very focused, that is very united, that is very patriotic and nationalistic and that is by the grace of God, the National Assembly that we shall have”.
“We also hope to have a National Assembly that will work with the executive arm of government in a partnership and synergy to ensure that we perform our functions as a government because we are a single unit.
Noting that the last Senate didn’t perform to capacity. “I am sure we did not perform to our capacity as a National Assembly in the last National Assembly. This time around we want to perform to full capacity and by the grace of God, Nigerians will see a positive difference in terms of delivery of service to our countrymen and women.” he said
Noting that it takes two to tangle.
“It requires sacrifice in the National Assembly and the Executive side of the government that we create a window for budget defense within a dedicated period and time frame- say a month of which only budget defense would be carried out in the National Assembly”.
“I believe that nobody would take pleasure in wasting the time of this administration. We are in a hurry, we are thirsty to perform, we want to support Mr President, we want to see Mr President achieve those legacies dreams that he has and we are going to work full course and full time to ensure that we give him the maximum support that he requires.” he said.
