Senate President Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan has said that the ninth National Assembly will not fail President Muhammadu Buhari.
Lawan stated this in Gashua, during a Town Hall meeting to round off a thank you visit to his constituents in Yobe State, according to a statement by his media aide, Ola Awoniyi.
“We will make sure the ninth National Assembly gives him (Buhari) the full support needed to achieve the Next Level agenda in the interest of our people and the country.
“Though there are pockets of opposition from other sides, I assure you all that we won’t fail the President,” Lawan said.
For the first time since his assumption of the leadership of the National Assembly in June, Lawan spent two days to traverse the six Local Government Areas that make up his Yobe North Senatorial District.
He returned to Abuja yesterday after he assured the people that his colleagues at the National Assembly will endeavour to give good representation to achieve the set agenda.
“In the current Senate, I have the full cooperation of the senators from the opposition parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party, because of the tremendous love and trust shown to us by President Buhari,” he said.
Lawan, however, appealed for patience saying there is no perfection in human beings.
