Senate President Lawan, Tinubu Meet In Lagos




Senate President Ahmed Lawan has met with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in Lagos State.

Speaking after meeting with Tinubu at his residence in Bourdillon, Ikoyi, Lawan warned ministries, departments and agencies, saying the Senate will take its oversight role seriously and perform the assignment without fear or favour.

He said: “Whoever is given a job must do it well.

“We will perform our job not to create hostility or engender rancour in the relationship between the National Assembly and the Executive.

“Synergy will help us deliver our respective services to the people.”

Lawan assured the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of the continued support of the National Assembly.

Also speaking, Bola Tinubu said the objectives and determination of the National Assembly to perform their functions dispassionately were good.

He hailed the Senate President on his resolve to run a bi-partisan Senate, saying though democracy is the best form of government, it remains the most difficult to practise.

Those that accompanied Lawan on his visit to Tinubu include: Senators Solomon Adeola Olamilekan, Opeyemi Bamidele, Halliru Jika, Sani Musa and Bayo Osinowo.

He was received by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, former Interim Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande and former National Vice Chairman, South-west of the party, Chief Pius Akinyelure, among others.
