President Muhammadu Buhari congratulated Sen. Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila for emerging as the leaders of the 9th National Assembly.

The President in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, on Tuesday said.

PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI

He described their emergence as “a new dawn different from the duplicity and perfidy that characterised the 8th National Assembly” led by immediate past Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, and an ex-Speaker, Dogara.

“The President also salutes all the national legislators and their political parties for their display of patriotism and non-partisanship before and during the election.

“He commends the transparent and fair nature of the voting process, adjudging it as a plus for the democracy in the country,” the statement added.

Buhari advised the leadership to use their exalted positions to work for the interest of Nigerians.

The President also touched on executive-legislature relationship, saying, “The executive does not desire a rubber stamp legislature. While separation of powers is essential, collaboration among all arms of government should be the name of the game. Opposition need not be virulent”.

The President stated that, “Stepping into the Next Level, the legislature has a big role to play for the goals of the administration to be achieved…This is for the ultimate good of the nation”.
