Senate President, Ahmad Lawan calls for understanding among lawmakers


AS Senate reconvened from its two weeks break, the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan said lawmakers must work in unison in order to achieve a lot for the people of Nigeria.

He told his colleagues that he would disappoint those who have the notion that the leadership of a National Assembly controlled by the ruling party working in harmony with the executive is anathema.

Lawan who promised that as President of the Senate, he will not subscribe to adversarial or acrimonious relationship, stressed that the presidential system of government was not designed to function in an acrimonious manner.

President of the Senate who noted that the lawmakers would intensify efforts on robust oversight, said that they would also consolidate on the oil reforms that begun in the 8th Senate.
