Buhari, Gbajabiamila Congratulate Senate President, Lawan On 64th Birthday

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on his 64th birthday.

The president, in a statement issued Wednesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina and made available to News Point Nigeria, said Lawan has a profile of being one of the most experienced legislators in the country, having served eight years in the House of Representatives, 1999-2007, and almost 12 years in the Senate.

The president said Lawan, after leaving his career path as a lecturer and researcher, deployed his vast knowledge in shaping policies and strengthening democracy in Nigeria by always showing maturity, and advocating a win-win for all stakeholders.

The president saluted what he called the “historic interventions” of the Senate President, particularly providing a peaceful and harmonious leadership for the 9th National Assembly that had translated into many gains for the country on legislation and passing of bills into law.

Also, Speaker Gbajabiamila in his statement lauded the contributions of the President of the Senate to the Nigerian Legislature from 1999 to date, noting that as a presiding officer in the ninth assembly, he has demonstrated his experience and expertise acquired over the years.

The Speaker said working with the President of the Senate for almost four years as one of the presiding officers of the ninth assembly had been a worthwhile experience.
