Senate President Ahmad Lawan has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not determine the actions of the Senate.
The Senate President made this known on Saturday in Yobe State, at a reception in his honour.
“I can take it upon myself to run a non-partisan Senate, where party does not determine what we do. What we do could be determined by the interest of Nigeria.
“Every Nigerian, regardless of his political party, wants to see an economy that works and also wants to live in peace,” he said.
Senator Lawan called on Nigerians to support the National Assembly to enable them to perform very well.
“I want to use this opportunity to appeal to Nigerians to continue to support us in the National Assembly; to advise us and to guide us where we are wrong or where we are about to be wrong,” he said.
He hailed his colleagues for their cooperation and being focused in discharging their duties.
