The Senate has congratulated President Buhari and the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on their inauguration. The members promised that the upper legislative house will identify with the new administration for the interest of the citizenry.
Senate President, David Mark commended Nigerians for accepting the outcome of the general elections that ushered new leadership.
“If the followers didn’t accept the results of the elections) the story would have been different today. For the first time in the history of this country, we discovered that the Presidential election is not before any tribunal.
“I think that is a milestone in our democratic process and we must acknowledge that it is a mark of statesmanship and a demonstration of the acceptance of the will of the people because election is not done by just one individual, election is done by all of us who are members of the various constituencies.
“It is not just enough to congratulate President Buhari, I think we should also congratulate the former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, who willingly conceded defeat and followed the announcement with a telephone call to President Buhari and also appealed to his members to accept that as the verdict from the people,” Mark said.
