Senator Shehu Sani said there is need for the National Assembly, particularly the All Progressives Party, APC, senators to be united if President Muhammadu Buhari must succeed.
Sani who empasized that a divided senate will not help President Buhari in any way, called on all factions and aggrieved APC senators to accept Saraki as the Senate President for peace to reign.
The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly noted that the rift over election and emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as the Senate President should not divide the senate but strengthen it in order to work for the interest of the masses.
Speaking at an interactive forum with journalists on Monday, Senator Sani said the lawmakers can’t afford to fail the teeming Nigerians who queued up in the sun to vote APC during the 2015 general elections just for mere personal interest.
According to him, the elected senators should by now accept Saraki’s emergence and face the primary duty of lawmaking that will have impact on lives of the citizens.
“Change can make meaning if it adds value to the lives of the people,” he stated.
While noting that a divided APC house gave room for PDP to have their way, he advised all aggrieved members to resolve the issues that created the crack.
Sani, who said he has disengaged himself from both Lawan and Saraki led groups, urged the senators to “accept the fortunate and unfortunate situation to live in peace.”
He commended former President Olusegun Obasanjo for intervening and trying to reconcile the aggrieved parties.
