The Senate President, Senator Ibrahim Lawan has assured the people of Katsina state with the resolve to continue to work with the government of President Muhammadu Buhari until there’s a lasting solution to the security situation in the country.
He disclosed this while he was Special Guest of Honour at the launching of the constituency empowerment programme of Senator Bello Mandiya in Malumfashi, Katsina state on Sunday. He said he used this opportunity to commiserate with the government and people of Katsina state over the sad incidents of bandit attacks in some parts of the state.
He also said what they have done in Malumfashi today is the empowerment of the most ordinary Nigerians that otherwise wouldn’t have been remembered when talk about the national budget. “It is part of what we call constituency project.
As members of the National Assembly, who are close to the ordinary man, we try to go for those projects and issues that would make a difference in their individual and collective lives. I am happy that Mandiya is already doing this”, he said.
He added that Bello Mandiya has been a very loyal, very committed and a very reliable Senator. “He is a worthy successor to Senator Abu Ibrahim, who himself is a retired but not tired Senator that has been very supportive and has given us the leadership that we require.
“For me, I remain committed to ensuring that Senator Bello Mandiya succeeds, that he grows and mature into a great Senator by the grace of God”, he said.
