IBB Commends Niger Lawmakers
A Former Military President, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, on Thursday, commended members of the Niger State House of Assembly, rating them high.
The former Nigerian leader told the lawmakers he had been looking forward to meeting them, adding that they have met the expectations of the people.
The retired General made the submission when he hosted the legislators at his Uphill home in Minna, Niger State.
“I have been looking forward to meeting with you.
“I am proud to say that you have been doing well. You are meeting our expectations.
“We have heard of states lacking synergy among the arms of the government, but in Niger State, that should not be your lot.
“Keep a good working relationship between the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. You have been doing this and I want you to keep it up.
“You are closer to the people. It is your responsibility to know what the people need and carry them along all the time. Do not leave them outside your projects and programmes,” he said.
The Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Abdullahi Bawa Wuse said they were at the hilltop residence of the former President to get his blessings and support to run the legislature effectively.
“We are here to get the blessing of our father; this is because we know your concern and commitment to the development of this state and Nigeria.
“Outside office, you have done more than you did while in office. Your role as a father in the nation has ensured that Nigeria remains indivisible,” Bawa said.
