We Will Challenge President Buhari’s Government And Policies.

The Nigerian Senate president, Ahmad Lawan has once again vowed never to be a rubber stamp leader and instrument for the executive arm of the federal government.

Lawan who reinstated his promise when he received Women Parliamentarians, a group led by Joy Emordi, a former senator representing Anambra north said it is “laughable” that he is being referred to as “rubber stamp” Senate President.

He also vows that the Senate under him would challenge President  Muhammadu Buhari’s government and policies but “in a decent manner”.

There is no time that I will ever be a rubber stamp,” he said.

Yes, I believe in President Buhari as a person and I believe in my party, the APC, but I believe that our problems as Nigerians are Nigerian problems. They are neither APC nor PDP problems, they are Nigerian problems that require Nigerian solution. So, we have to work together.

“We will be there for the executive arm of government all the time in moving this country forward. We are going to challenge the executive in a manner that is decent but decisive. As a minister, you have to do your ministerial job well.

“We will make government appointees to do what is required of them. We have to deal with the issues confronting us. It is not going to be easy, but we have to build a relationship that have mutual respect, collaboration and partnership. It is achievable.”

The Senate president urged the women to be more involved in politics, saying: “the political space in the country is wide enough to accommodate our women.”

On her part, Emordi urged Lawan and his colleagues to work for the good of Nigerians.
