Airhiavbere said that Lawan had garnered much experience in legislation to enable him lead the Senate.
In his words, Airhiavbere said; “I expect Lawan’s emergence to be of benefit to the entire country because his people have continuously return him to the National Assembly since 1999.
“I also believe that with the support of the senators elect that are being inaugurated, he will take the 9th Assembly to a higher level of achievements because we count on his experience.”
Lawan, who is from Yobe, was elected as member of the House of Representatives in 1999.
