The president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, has made it clear that he has no particular Senator in mind to become the Senate President and that he is willing to work with any them that eventually clinch the post, irrespective of what part of the country he or she originates from.
In a statement in Abuja today, General Buhari described as false, insinuations in the media that he was in support of any particular Senator emerging as Leader or that he belonged to any camp pushing for the emergence of a leader from a particular part of the country.
“I am prepared to work with any leaders that the House or Senate selects. It doesn’t matter who the person is or where he or she is from.”
Buhari noted that the insinuations were probably born out of people’s expectations based on the way things had happened in the past, but reminded Nigerians that CHANGE had truly come.
“There is due process for the selection of leaders of the National Assembly and I will not interfere in that process.”
General Buhari said that the media and the public should begin to get used to no more “business as usual.
“Nigeria has indeed entered a new dispensation. My administration does not intend to repeat the same mistakes made by previous governments.”
