JONATHAN-MARK-TambuwalIs it any surprise to the undiscerning mind that there appears to be frequent disagreements between the Executive and Legislative arms of government on matters of interest to Nigerian? This has been attributed to difference in perception, the Minister of Special Duties and Inter Governmental Affairs, Barrister Tanimu Kabiru Turaki (SAN) has said.

Speaking on Sunday in Abuja in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Okey Muogbo, the minister said the disagreements are a healthy development.

“Yes, we may disagree but our disagreement, at the end of the day should not be a source of weakness, it should be a source of strength,” Turaki said.

He added that “But even in situations where you have noticed disagreement between the executive and the legislative arms of government, it has been so because they either look at things differently or because of the passion they have in ensuring that each one complements the efforts of the other within the parameters of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and I think that is a healthy development.

“Both the leadership of the National Assembly and Mr. President were elected by the people. Even if a situation arises that may appear to give the impression that all is not well between them, the people must understand that it is because of the passion both of them have to actualise their mandate and to serve Nigerians better.”

Turaki, who also doubles as chairman of the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North, commended the leadership of the Senate and the House of Representatives as well as President Goodluck Jonathan for the display of maturity in the handling of their disagreements over the 2013 budget amendment.
