Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration failed during its first tenure as a result of the face-off between the Executive and the National Assembly.
According to the lawmaker, the All Progressives Congress (APC) government could not deliver their electoral promises to the electorates during the first tenure as there was no cordial relationship between the bodies.
Naija News understands that Lawan stated this while speaking at the First Progressives Youth Conference 2021, on Monday night in Abuja.
He said, “When we were voted in 2019 as leaders of the National Assembly, we were conscious of one thing, that the mandate that was given to us by Nigerians in 2015 had suffered disruption and dislocation.
“For four years (2015 to 2019), our government could not perform optimally because of the then crisis between the parliament – the National Assembly – and the Executive arm of government.
“So, APC had already lost four very important years. And, that was supposed to be the year that we should have convinced Nigerians that they took the right decision by voting out a PDP administration in 2015.”
Meanwhile, it was reported earlier that the scarcity of brooms has hit Cross River State after the All Progressives Congress (APC) ordered three million bunches in the state to welcome new entrants into the party, Naija News reports.
