Emenike Congratulates New Leaders of N’Assembly, Enjoins them to Serve Nation Well

The 2023 governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia State, High Chief Ikechi Emenike, has congratulated the new Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Deputies for their emergence as presiding  officers of the 10th National Assembly.
Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom State emerged the Senate President with Senator Barau Jubrin as his Deputy while in the House of Representatives, Hon.Tajudeen Abbas and Hon. Benjamin Kalu were elected Speaker and Deputy Speaker, respectively.
Emenike in a statement, said that he was satisfied with the emergence of these “fine crop of leaders for the nation’s hallowed chambers of legislative business.”
“I have no doubt that with these intelligent and patriotic lawmakers leading the National Assembly, there I’ll be harmony and synergy between the executive and legislative arms of government for the overall growth and prosperity of the nation,” he said.
“President Bola Tinubu has come to enthrone renewed hope, growth and prosperity in Nigeria and this can only be made possible if the federal legislators see themselves as people on patriotic duties who should work in partnership with Mr. President,” he added.
Emenike, who was the Abia State Coordinator of Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council, implored the leadership of the National Assembly to get to work immediately and make Nigerians feel the positive impact of their quality legislations.
“The leadership of the National Assembly should hit the ground running because  expectations from Nigerians are very high especially with the fuel subsidy removal. They should come up with legislations that will grow the economy and improve living conditions of the people.
Emenike, who is a renowned development economist, commended the members of the 10th National Assembly for the confidence they reposed in Akpabio and Jubrin to pilot the affairs of the Red Chamber, and for Abbas and Kalu to be in charge of the Green Chamber of the apex legislative body.
“Abians are happy to be part of the new leadership of the 10th National Assembly and I trust that Hon. Ben Kalu will make everybody proud,” the Abia APC leader said.
He lauded the federal lawmakers elected on the platform of the ruling APC for allowing the will of the party leadership to prevail on the choice of the people to be at the helm of affairs in both the Senate and the  House of Representatives.
“The overwhelming support from our party’s leadership and weeks of bipartisan engagements ensured your peaceful emergence as presiding officers of the 10th National Assembly.
“This is an indication that our democracy is growing and has come to stay. The support and cooperation should not be taken for granted,” Emenike emphasised.
