President Bola Tinubu says the efforts of his administration to transform the nation’s economy are yielding results with the support of the National Assembly.
Speaking at a colloquium to mark the 61st birthday of the Senate President Godswill Akpabio in Abuja, President Tinubu said the challenges facing the country would be jointly assessed by the executive and legislature – with a view to evolving implementable solutions for the good of Nigerians.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser, Ajuri Ngelale, the President was quoted extolling the leadership credentials of the Senate President, describing him as a leader who has shown commitment to national development, starting right from his early days as a commissioner in Akwa Ibom State.
President Tinubu recalled how some of the economic and social programmes initiated by Senator Akpabio, when he was governor, developed the state, noting that the drainage system Senator Akpabio constructed in Akwa-Ibom State had saved many lives and livelihoods.
In his remarks, the Senate President commended President Tinubu for his visionary leadership, most recently demonstrated in the quality of decisions taken so far to ensure improved security and a revamped economy.
He assured the President that the National Assembly would work with him to transform the country.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honorable Tajudeen Abbas, who was also present at the event, thanked the President for articulating his economic vision clearly for the National Assembly.
