Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has congratulated Senator Ahmed Lawan and Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila on their victories as President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Governor Sanwo-Olu described Lawan’s and Gbajabiamila’s victories as results of focus, hard work, resilience and team spirit, saying that the keenly contested elections in both chambers of the National Assembly are a clear indication of deepening democratic culture in Nigeria and a clear manifestation that Nigeria’s democracy is growing in leaps and bounds.
He urged Senator Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila to work closely with the Executive arm of the Government for speedy and efficient service delivery to Nigerians.
The Lagos State Governor who watched proceedings of the two Chambers live at the National Assembly complex in Abuja advised the newly elected principal officers of the Senate and the House of Representatives to see their new positions as a heavy responsibility because according to him, “Leadership itself is responsibility’’.
Governor Sanwo-Olu also urged the opposition party to close ranks with the victors in the interest of all Nigerians, noting that politicking is over and now is time to deliver dividends of democracy to the citizens.
