Buhari Reacts To The 8th National Assembly Inauguration Outcome

Amid confusion that sprung up at the rejection of the controversially elected presiding officers of the Senate and House of Representatives by the ruling All Progressives Party, APC, President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the development.
The statement issued via a verified Twitter of President Buhari and monitored via NUJ Europe on Tuesday is as follows:
"I did not have any preferred candidate for the Senate and the House of Representatives." - @MBuhari
"Although I would have preferred the new leaders to have emerged through the process established by the party..." - @MBuhari
"I am willing to work with whoever the lawmakers elected." - @MBuhari
"The stability of our constitutional order and overall interest of the common man are uppermost on my mind." - @MBuhari
"I call on all the elected representatives of the people to focus on the enormous task..." - @MBuhari
"...of bringing enduring positive change to the lives of Nigerians." - @MBuhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has noted the outcome of the just-concluded election of leaders of the National Assembly.

A statement issued by the Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) said the president would rather that the process of electing the leaders as initiated and concluded by the All Progressives Congress (APC) had been  followed. Nonetheless the President took the view that a constitutional process has somewhat occurred.

“President Buhari had said in an earlier statement that he did not have any preferred candidate for the Senate and the House of Representatives, and that he was willing to work with whoever the lawmakers elected,” Adesina said. “That sentiment still stands. Though he would have preferred the new leaders to have emerged through the process established by the party”.

Adesina stressed that the stability of our constitutional order and overall interest of the common man were uppermost on the President’s mind, as far as the National Assembly elections were concerned.

The President called on all the elected representatives of the people to focus on the enormous task of bringing enduring positive change to the lives of Nigerians.
