While reacting to the series of disagreements between some lawmakers and presidential appointees, including some ministers and heads of Federal Government agencies.
The Senate President, Dr. Ahmed Lawan, has warned appointees of President Muhammadu Buhari against disrespecting the National Assembly.
He gave the warning on Monday while entertaining questions from the State House Correspondents after the inauguration of the Executive, Legislative Party Consultative Council at the Presidential Villa by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“For us in the National Assembly, I think what has happened has happened and I pray that nobody goes to the National Assembly to do the kind of things that some people did before because that will be disrespecting the President and, of course, abuse of the National Assembly and we are not going to tolerate that.”
“Coming to your second-leg of the question that recently we had some appointees on the executive side walking out or maybe saying things, I believe that that should be the end of it; we believe that we should work together,” the lawmaker stated.
He stressed the need for political officers to ensure the Council produces the desired results and outcomes, that would make Nigeria better in terms of governance.
He also said that President Muhammadu Buhari was very clear when he said he will not accept or tolerate any of his appointees doing things outside the scope of the law and that are not respectable and have no dignity to the National Assembly.
