During an interview with State House correspondents in Abuja on Thursday, the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, expressed his commitment to ensuring that the 10th Senate, under his leadership, engages in vigorous legislative debates that will meet the expectations of Nigerians.
Following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu, Akpabio emphasized the Senate’s role in providing the President with essential legislation and shedding light on various community issues through motions and observations, thereby facilitating further governmental action.
“Nigerians expect robust legislative debates, they expect us to focus on Nigeria and they expect us to help Mr President to take decisions that will improve the lot of Nigerians, they expect us to take decisions that will ensure total empowerment.
“Above all, they want the improvement of the economy, they want to see palliatives, they want everything about the wellbeing of Nigeria to be taken seriously, just like it is in the Constitution that the primary purpose of government is about security and welfare of the people.
“Once we take care of those things, we would have met their expectations but I assure you that we are poised to do so,”
“I think the President has already started, ours is to back him and to support his actions for the betterment of the country. So, for now, the parliament on resumption will also lend our voice to what we have seen so far,” Akpabio said.
“He has taken the right steps, the stock market is rising and a lot of people are excited with the steps he has taken so far, we are also happy. There is a renewed hope not just in terms of the economy, but in terms of stability of the country, it will affect all facets of life including security.”
