PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI, NATIONAL CHAIRMAN OF APC, ADAMS OSHIOMHOLE

Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole spoke on Tuesday when he led members of the National Working Committee of the APC on a courtesy call on the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and the principal officers of the Senate.

President Muhammadu Buhari has been on a two-week private visit to London where at the weekend, he signed a bill into law.

He praised the commitment of the Senate to passing the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract Act (amendment) Bill, which the President signed.

According to him, assenting the Bill at the Nigerian House in London is evidence that the President is on duty and can work from anywhere.

Oshiomhole said: “I was also excited to see Mr President sign the Bill in London. Again, a couple of implication on this.

“That like you (the Senate), the President recognised that if you can manage it as quickly as you did and come out with such fundamental amendment that has such enormous impact on our national revenue, he, as President also has to do the needful.

“I think by signing the Bill into law at the Nigerian House in London, it shows that where the President is, he is Presiding over Nigeria and with the benefit of modern technology. We have passed the Mongo Park era.

“So, signing it in London for me has also made several statements. Namely, that where ever national interest is involved, the President is on duty and wherever he is he is presiding.

“I also salute his assenting to the Bill as fast as he did.”

Comending the Senate, he said: “What is missing, that level of integrity you require to subordinate your interest when the forces are unleashed and submit to the national interest.

“It is this difference that I believe the National Assembly under your leadership across the party divide has brought to bear. Nigerians ought to celebrate you.

“We as a party, we celebrate you, we celebrate the Senate, we celebrate our APC members.

“We celebrate the PDP members because we monitored the debate and there is no evidence that there is division.

“National interest was at play. We have come to appreciate you and under your leadership, the Senate would be a formidable national pillar that Nigerians can rely on in our journey to take the nation to the next level.”

Oshiomhole said: “Usually when things don’t go well, people are loudest in criticizing. When they go well, they take it for granted but we believe that this one is worth acknowledging”, hr said.
