Buhari Laments Poor Relationship Between Him And NASS Under Saraki, Dogara


President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday admitted that the relationship between the Executive arm of the government and the 8th National Assembly was not the best.

He made this known while hosting outgoing members of the 8th National Assembly to an Iftar dinner (breaking of fast) at the State House, stating that the nation deserved better than it got.

President Buhari thereafter said he expects a better working relationship between the two arms of government in the 9th National Assembly.

“Relations between the Executive and the Legislature were not the best in the 8th National Assembly," President Buhari said.

He added: "I sincerely hope each one of us will do his utmost to ensure there is a better working relationship between these two arms of government in the 9th Assembly so that we can serve the people better."

According to President Buhari, the main task of the National Assembly is to cooperate with the Executive to fashion policies that will lift our people out of poverty and out of illiteracy.

"I appeal to the Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members to subordinate all personal interests and ambitions to the imperative of working for the common good of our people.

"This is a great burden and a great responsibility placed on you by your people. Our citizens are faced with challenges of poverty.

“Your principal task is to cooperate with the Executive so that together we can fashion policies that will lift our people out of poverty and out of illiteracy. I appeal to the Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members to subordinate all personal interests and ambitions to the imperative of working for the common good of our people," President Buhari said.

He also urged all lawmakers who have genuine concerns or advice to improve the quality of governance and service delivery to the Nigerian people.
