President Buhari blamed Saraki-led National Assembly over their deliberate and persistent delay in passing the nation’s annual budget.
He, therefore, challenged the incoming 9th National Assembly to do things differently from the outgoing 8th Senate, so as to enable his administration to achieve its target of transforming the nation. He said:
“This is my fifth and last time of standing for an election – for that reason, I will like to leave something behind.
“And what I want to leave cannot be successfully done without your support.
“So, that is why I am appealing for your support. What happened in the last Senate and so on is regrettable, because I still feel it should not take seven months to pass a budget. You have a very, very serious job ahead of you.
“So, what I am appealing is that any major decision you are going to take, please reflect more on the country than yourself as a person – what effect will it have on the country.”
While promising to work and partner with the 9th National Assembly in promoting peace, stability, and economic prosperity in the country, the President thanked the Governors and Senators-elect for their support and understanding.
