According to Lawan, it is “laughable” that he is being referred to as “rubber stamp”, restating that he would challenge the execute “in a decent manner”.

“There is no time that I will ever be a rubber stamp,” he said.

“Yes, I believe in President Buhari as a person and I believe in my party, the APC, but I believe that our problems as Nigerians are Nigerian problems. They are neither APC nor PDP problems, they are Nigerian problems that require a Nigerian solution. So, we have to work together.

“We will be there for the executive arm of government all the time in moving this country forward. We are going to challenge the executive in a manner that is decent but decisive. As a minister, you have to do your ministerial job well.

“We will make government appointees do what is required of them. We have to deal with the issues confronting us. It is not going to be easy, but we have to build a relationship that has mutual respect, collaboration, and partnership. It is achievable.”
