“I will ensure the president gets the full backing of the House to accomplish his many dreams to take the country to greater heights. I take this will all sense of humility as a national call to duty,” he said.
While thanking the president for the appointment, Mr. Kawu expressed optimism that the president’s policy of non-interference in the affairs of the legislature will help cement executive-legislature relation.
