Ayodele Afolabi, Abuj – President Muhammadu Buhari said he has noted the outcome of the just-concluded election of leaders of the National Assembly.
A statement issued by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) Femi Adesina said the president would rather prefer that the process of electing the national assembly leaders follows the process initiated by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, the President noted 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.
“That sentiment still stands.
“Though he would have preferred the new leaders to have emerged through the process established by the party”. the statement explained
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.
