As members of the 9th National Assembly last week elected Sen. Ahmed Lawan for Senate president and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as speaker House of Representatives, youths under the aegis of APC youth Parliament, Sunday organized a grand rally in Bauchi to celebrate the dou.
Speaking with Journalists during the rally, Secretary Bauchi State chapter of the Parliament Malam Nasiru Cigari said their collective resolve to back the dou for the exalted offices was not only out of loyalty to the party but was also in consideration of their wealth of experience in the legislature, politics National and international affairs.
He alleged that in the last four years, leaders of the National Assembly sabotaged the president Muhammadu Buhari which hindered him from implementing some of his manifestos and development agendas.
” Furthermore, we wish to solicit the new leaders of the National assembly to support the president in his bid to transform the country through speedy passage of budgets and bills sent to assembly. We believe that Mr President has good plans for the nation but he cannot implement them successfully without the support of law makers.”
“As the consequences of not doing that will cast a negative precedence to the collective progress of our dear nation Nigeria.”
“We expect that the Lawan and Gbajabiamila’s led 9th NASS will bring a better and more robust legislative approach and policies that will rid our country off the emerging negative legislative policies,” he said.
