Senate president Ahmed Lawan has revealed that he made a promise never to deceive people who elected him into power since 1999 when he was elected as House of Representatives Member.
Lawan made this known in a statement by his Media Assistant, Ezrel Tabiowo,
“The people of Zone C gave me the opportunity to serve them, and I’ll remain eternally grateful for that opportunity.
“I made a promise when I entered into politics, or partisan politics in 1998, when I served as Vice Chairman of the All People’s Party (APP) in Yobe.
“But in 1999 when I was elected as a member of the House of Representatives, I promised that I will not deceive the people who elected me.
“I will always tell them the truth, even if it is bitter, and I will do my best at all times to represent them very well.
“I’m still on that, and thank God from my federal constituency, to the larger Yobe North zone C, I have understood my people and my people understand me,” the Senate President said.
