It’s A New Dawn – Excited Buhari, APC

                         

Obviously excited over the outcome of the National Assembly elections on Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have congratulated the newly elected presiding officers of the 9th National Assembly.

Senator Ahmad Lawan from Yobe State, on Tuesday, emerged new Senate President when he polled 79 votes to defeat his only contender, Senator Ali Ndume from Borno State, who scored 28 votes.

Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege (APC-Delta) emerged Deputy Senate President after polling 68 to defeat former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who polled 37.

The House of Representatives also elected Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos), as the Speaker of the 9th House of Representatives when he polled 281 votes against Umar Bago, who got 76, while his deputy, Ahmed Idris Wase (APC-Plateau), emerged without election as his nomination was without any opposition.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Tuesday, the president also saluted all the national legislators and their political parties for their display of patriotism and non-partisanship before and during the election.

He commended the transparent and fair nature of the voting process, adjudging it as a plus for the democracy in the country.

President Buhari described the emergence of the new leaders of the legislative branch of government as “a new dawn, different from duplicity and perfidy of the immediate past”.

He, however, charged the winners to use their exalted positions for the higher interest of the country, her people, and for the growth of democracy.

He said: “The executive does not desire a rubber stamp legislature. While separation of powers is essential, collaboration among all arms of government should be the name of the game. Opposition need not be virulent.

“Stepping into the Next Level, the legislature has a big role to play for the goals of the administration to be achieved. This is for the ultimate good of the nation.”

The president urged contestants who lost out to be gallant in defeat, and join hands with the victors who should exhibit magnanimity and eschew vindictiveness.

“At the end of the day, we, the people, who elected our representatives at the national level, are the winners,” he noted.

Lawan was declared winner of the Senate presidential election held at the Senate Chamber on Tuesday.
