Buhari backs Saraki, Dogara as Senate President, Speaker

President Muhammadu BuhariPresident Muhammadu Buhari has backed Senator Bukola Saraki and Honourable Yakubu Dogara as the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives respectively.In a statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, he said though he would have preferred that the leadership of the National Assembly came about through the arrangement put in place by the All Progressives Congress, but since the emergence of Saraki, Dogara and the others had conformed with the constitution, he had no issues with it.

“President Buhari had said in an earlier statement that he did not have any preferred candidate for the Senate and the House of Representatives, and that he was willing to work with whoever the lawmakers elected,” the statement said.
“That sentiment still stands. Though he would have preferred the new leaders to have emerged through the process established by the party.”
Buhari stressed that the stability of Nigeria’s constitutional order and overall interest of the common man were uppermost on the President’s mind as far as the National Assembly elections were concerned.
The President called on all the elected representatives of the people to focus on the enormous task of bringing enduring positive change to the lives of Nigerians
