Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan said the upper legislative chamber would support President Muhammadu Buhari to fulfil campaign promises to Nigerians.
Lawan made the remark in Gombe at the launch of the empowerment programme of Senator Sa’idu Ahmed Alkali for his constituents.
Alkali, an All Progressive Congress(APC) Senator, is representing Gombe North Senatorial District in the Senate.
The Senate President said Buhari had never rested for a second in his determination to turn around the fortune of the country.
“President Muhammadu Buhari who is the leader of this party (APC) in this country, who has given us great leadership from 2015 to date, who has shown great desire to turn around the fortune of this country, has never rested for a second.
“He is doing his best even though we are still not out of the woods but we have done so much between 2015 and 2021.
“By the Grace of God, the National Assembly will continue to support Mr President to ensure that he delivers on our campaign promises to Nigerians,” Lawan said.
The Senate President commended the Governor of Gombe State, Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya, who is also an APC member for the significant transformation brought to the state.
He showered encomium on Alkali for providing quality representation for his people at the National Assembly.
The Senate President urged the Gombe people to consider giving both the Governor and the Senator another chance to continue with the good work.
In the company of the Senate President from Abuja were Senator Mohammed Sani Musa, Senator Bello Mandiya, Senator Yusuf Abubakar Yusuf and Senator Kabir Abdullahi Barkiya.
