Senate President, Dr. Ahmed Lawan has said the 9th Senate would focus on the interest of Nigeria rather than personal interest as they perform their duties.
Ahmed Lawan revealed this as he hosted chairmen of state chapters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
He was quoted as saying, “This Senate will subsume any individual interest for our collective interest.”
These are things that will continue to unite us. It is when we are able to tackle those issues in the collective interest of Nigeria particularly, that we are able to enjoy the privileges that we have,
“We will ensure we work seamlessly with President Muhammadu Buhari and the party.
“We have been elected to represent the Nigerian people. Mr. President was overwhelmingly elected.
“We will have no difficulty in working with Mr. President,” he said.
He called for a dispute resolution mechanism in the APC to amicably resolve any issue of conflict within the party.
“From my experience in 2019 elections or the process leading to the elections, we need to have a better dispute resolution mechanism.”
