My swearing – in today as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria marks the highpoint of my political career.
I give all glory to the Almighty Allah for making it possible. I also thank the great people of Kaduna Central Senatorial District for making me their torch bearer. Their confidence in me will never be in vain. My sincere appreciation to our dear party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for keeping faith with me and making my journey to the 9th Senate a reality.
I congratulate our new Senate President, the articulate, eloquent, resourceful, but firm bridge builder, Ahmed Lawan. His emergence marks a new and refreshing beginning in the Senate – Executive relationship for the good of Nigeria.
Congratulations also to Senator Omo-Agege for emerging Deputy Senate President. He will surely bring his wealth of experience to bear on that office.
Congratulations to my dear colleagues, fellow Senators on their swearing -in and formal inauguration of the 9th Senate. Together we shall work assiduously to uplift the socio-economic and political condition of the Nigerian people.
