Tanko Al-Makura has said current members of the National Assembly have not done their job of complementing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
He said this was one of the reasons that made him contest for a seat in the Senate in the February 16 elections.
His words, “The current crop of legislators failed woefully in complimenting President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, a situation that has resulted in poor developmental strides in the past three and half years.”
“We want to ensure that we partake in this project to support the President to ensure that his vision is being supported by the parliament, so that he wouldn’t have any problem in ensuring full implementation of the well-designed programmes he has for this country.
“Secondly, we have seen the commitment and loyalty of the calibre of senators now at the Red Chamber.
“It has never added tremendous amount of hope that Nigeria has come to be: to have people who are committed, selfless and patriotic to support the President in ensuring that this country is taken to the next level.
“That is the second encouragement that made me to throw my hat into the ring to partake in this exercise. I believe that as a committed man, if some of us had started the way Buhari is leading the country, a long way before now, this country would have attained a level many Nigerians would be proud of.”
