National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has advised the newly elected leaders of the country’s 9th National Assembly on the importance of a harmonious relationship between the executive arm and the legislative arm of the government.
This was contained in a congratulatory message, titled “Nurturing and Deepening National Assembly Institution, Democracy.”
According to him, the essential ingredient for continuous sustenance of an enduring legacy is predicated on such a relationship, he said, “It is imperative that the new leadership quickly departs from the adversarial posture of those that came before and extends hands of fellowship and friendship to the Executive.”
Tinubu further advised the leaders to partner with President Muhammadu Buhari on his administration’s progressive agenda to take Nigeria to the Next Level and to truly deliver the dividends of democracy.
“A convivial and cooperative relationship between the legislative and executive arms of government is our best chance at achieving the progress that we, as Nigerians, deserve and it’s incumbent on our new leaders to make this a reality in this next dispensation.
“Our system speaks of complementarity between the Executive and Legislature and does not preclude the Legislature from working harmoniously with the Executive in the service of our people.”
He also said, “Their emergence as leaders of the 9th National Assembly comes at a crucial time in our nation’s history. As we celebrate 20 years of uninterrupted democracy and our new National Democracy Day of June 12.
“We look backwards to recognise the sacrifices and valour of our heroes past. We also look forward with hope for the future of our nation and our democracy.”
