NASS’ll continue to support Buhari to deliver on mandate — Lawan


President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, says the National Assembly will continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari to enable him deliver more dividends of democracy to Nigerians.

Lawan stated this in Gombe on Sunday while inaugurating Gombe North Senatorial District Empowerment programme by Sen Sa’idu Alkali (Gombe North).

He stated that President Buhari had provided great leadership for both the country and the All Progressives Congress (APC) since coming on board in 2015.

According to him, President Buhari had shown great desire to turn around the fortunes of the country and he had been relentless in that quest.

He stated that though the country is not “Out of the woods, Mr. President is doing his best and for that we commend him.

“We have done so much between 2015 and 2021 and by the grace of God the National Assembly will continue to support Mr President to ensure that we deliver our campaign promises to Nigerians,” he said.

The Senate President said the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) 16 years achievements were nothing compared to what President Buhari had done in six years.

He appealed to Nigerians not to be deceived during campaign, noting that APC’s continuity would bring more dividends of democracy for the country and the people.

Lawan, who also commended Sen Alkali and Gov. Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State for their purposeful leadership, said their people-oriented programmes are commendable.
