The Senate has disagreed with Buhari many times – Lawan reveals
President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan has dismissed rubber stamp tag on the 9th senate.
Senator Lawan revealed that the senate on several occasions disagreed with President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, he noted that the Senate and Executive had a way of going behind the scene to settle their differences.
Buhari had a frosty relationship with the 8th Senate under the leadership of the immediate past leader, Bukola Saraki.
Lawan while speaking with Daily Trust said: “Do you know that we have disagreed with Mr. President, the executive arm of government, many times?
“People don’t know, because what we have adopted is to go behind the scenes and solve our problems.”
The Senate President also maintained that the Senate under his leadership has experienced better service delivery to Nigerians
He added that: “I have also witnessed better service delivery to the people when there was cooperation and mutual respect between the two arms.
“I think I will be unfair to myself, to the people and to the senators who elected me to choose right from the beginning to just fight in the name of independence of the legislature.”
