As members of the 9th National Assembly get set for inauguration on Tuesday, a political group pressure group, APC Youth Parliament, has appealed to all the elected lawmakers especially those in the party caucus to as a mark of respect to the party, vote for all its anointed candidates in the persons of Ahmed Lawan for Senate President and Femi Gbajabiamila as Speaker, House of Representatives.
While addressing journalists in Bauchi, the Secretary, Bauchi State chapter of the Parliament, Malam Nasiru Cigari, said that their collective resolve to back the duo for the exalted legislative offices was not only out of loyalty to the party but was also in consideration of their wealth of experiences aa legislators, politics, national and international affairs.
He alleged that in the last four years, leaders of the National Assembly sabotaged the President Muhammadu Buhari administration which hindered him from implementing some of the APC manifestos and development agenda.
Nasiru Cigari added that: “Furthermore, we wish to solicit the support of elected APC parliamentarians to as a mark of respect and loyalty to the party that made them to as a matter of reality accept the party’s choice of candidates for better economic growth and to give APC an ample opportunity to implement its viable manifesto.”
“As the consequences of not doing that will cast negative precedence to the collective progress of our dear nation Nigeria. Conclusively, the APC Youth Parliament wishes to urge other pro-APC Groups and Civil Society organizations (CSOs) to follow on its footprints by rooting for the emergence of Lawan and Gbajabiamila in the 9th NASS for a better and more robust legislative approach and policies that will rid our country off the emerging negative legislative policies”, he opined.
