We Won’t Allow What Happened In 2015 To Repeat – FG

The Federal Government has vowed to ensure what happened during the formation of the 8th Senate in 2015 do not repeat itself. Lai Mohammed, Information Minister, stated this when he appeared on a programme on Nigeria Television Authority.

He said the All Progressives Congress-led federal government would ensure the emergence of a National Assembly that will work in accordance with its progressive policies.
“As far as we respect the independence of the legislative arm of government, we also believe that, especially when a party has done very well in both legislative and executive elections, there should be a synergy between the legislative and the executive arms of government,” Mohammed said.

“I want to assure you that we are doing the right thing this time and we will not end up with the kind of situation that we had from 2015 to 2019.

“We will not have a situation where it will seem that the leadership of the National Assembly is working for the opposition or where members of the same party are working at cross-purposes.

“This time, we will get it right. We will have a good relationship with the National Assembly and we will work very well with the legislature,” the minister added.

During the formation of the current leadership of the National Assembly, the principal officers, though members of the APC, emerged against the wish of their party. This was made possible due to an alliance they formed with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The same scenario is about to play out as the formation of the 9th National Assembly is slated for June.
