(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nigerians on social media are bashing the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan for saying that the 9th National Assembly will not fail President Mohammadu Buhari.
Mr Lawan at a town hall meeting in his native home, Gashua told his audience that the national assembly will cooperate with the President in order to achieve his “next level” agenda.
“Although there are pockets of opposition from other sides, I assure you all that we won’t fail the President. We will make sure the ninth National Assembly gives Buhari the full support needed to achieve the Next Level agenda.”
However, many Nigerians on social media believe that the President of the Senate goofed by pledging not to fail the president rather than not failing Nigerians and the independence of the National Assembly.
Some of the tweets bashing the Senate President are as follows:
