Don’t distract Buhari, Senator tells colleagues

Lawmaker representing Osun East Senatorial District, Babajide Omoworare, has cautioned reactionary elements in the National Assembly against distracting the executive arm of government from realising its great agenda for Nigerians.

Senator Omoworare said this when he spoke with journalists at a function in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, at the weekend.

“In the spirit of progressivism as a dutiful lawmaker, I am personally opposed to the unwarranted distraction and diversionary tactics as presently displayed between the legislature and executive, deployed by reactionary elements in the National Assembly.

“President Muhammadu Buhari needs 100 per cent concentration and support from all quarters to fight corruption to a halt, revive the sleeping economy, boost income generation through diversification from a mono-product economy to initiate sustainable programmes.

Omoworare assured Nigerians that the All Progressives Congress government would not betray the confidence reposed in it.

“The expectation of an average Nigerian is to see economic buoyancy, reduction in the rate of youth unemployment, an end to the scourge of insecurity and militancy, improved electricity supply, massive infrastructural development across the length and breadth of our country,” the lawmaker stated.

While reacting to the recent reshuffling of the chairmanship of committees in the Senate, which saw him move as Chairman of the Rules and Business Committee to the newly created Legislative Compliance Committee, Omoworare said; “I have remained objective and sincere to every assignment and responsibility since  my days even as a state lawmaker and I must tell you that has not changed, and if my sins are prejudiced on my allegiance to the prospectus of party supremacy or my inferred alliance to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, so be it.

I dare say I remain unrepentant Tinubuist as I crave for selfless service to my people,” he said.
