NASS: We’re Determine To Leave Behind A Good Legacy – Sen. President, Saraki Assures Nigerians

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has revealed that the eight National Assembly would ensure they leave behind a perfect legacy where constitutional bills are passed for the interest and development of the Nigerians.In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the formed Kwara State Governor stated that the house would exercise their responsibilities judiciously without paying more emphasis on their personal achievements."The President of the Senate is just first amongst equals. However, what always motivates me is that drive to leave this institution better than we met it. I always like to leave a place stronger than I met it, and more capable to deliver on its constitutional role and functions than how it was before I got there.“The difference between democracy and dictatorship is parliament. This is why I tell people that it is not about who the Senate President, the President, or the Chief Justice of Nigeria is, we must always work to strengthen all our institutions.“For example, in four years, I’m gone. Somebody else will be there, but the institution will always remain. If you have weak parliament that is not effectively able to champion the needs of the people, you will have a weak democracy. However, because of myopic interest at times, some people do not see why we must protect the mandates and integrity of these institutions.” By Ehis Austine
