Your Emergence A Great Relief But Legislature Must Sync With Executive — Adamu

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has said the emergence of Senate President Godswill Akpabio and Deputy President Barau Jibrin was a great relief to the Party.

He added that the executive and legislative arms of government must collaborate in the interest of citizens.

While receiving a delegation of senators led by Akpabio at his residence in Keffi, Nasarawa state on Saturday, Adamu said Nigerians expect a lot from the new leadership of the national assembly.

“I congratulate you and your deputy on your emergence as the president of the senate and deputy president of the senate respectively.

“Your emergence was a great relief to the party. Contests for offices are over; it is now time for governance. There must be effective collaboration between the legislature and the executive in the overall interest of our people.

“Nigerians expect a lot through you and that can only be achieved through a united legislature and the executive working in sync in a bipartisan manner.

“As the president of the senate and chairman of the national assembly, you have the knowledge, experience and what it takes for the two arms of government to work in harmony for the peace and development of our country,” Adamu said.

Akpabio, on his part, assured the senate under his leadership would support the administration of President Bola Tinubu to succeed.

“As I have been saying, the 10th national assembly will support the President Bola Tinubu-led administration to succeed. We will put laws in place to support the Renewed Hope agenda of this administration in the overall interest of national peace, unity and development.

“We are here to pay Sallah homage to a man (Adamu) of honour. To give respect to whom it is due. We thank the leadership of the party and the national working committee (NWC) through you for the role you played which led to the success of the national assembly leadership elections.

“We also thank the Almighty Allah for keeping you alive and we pray that He keeps you alive in good health for more contributions to the development of the youth of this country,” he said.
