Senator Ahmed Lawan, the Senate President, has said the National Assembly will no longer condone disrespect from appointees of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Lawan made this known to State House correspondents shortly after President Buhari inaugurated the Executive, Legislative Party Consultative Committee at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday.
According to the number three citizen, President Buhari had himself stated that he will not accept any disrespectful behaviour to the federal lawmakers by his appointees.
He said: “I believe that should be the end of it (appointees knocking heads with legislature). We believe that we should work together.
“Mr President made it very clear that he is not going to tolerate any of his appointees doing things that are not respectable, things that have no dignity to the National Assembly.
“For us in the National Assembly, I think what has happened has happened. We pray nobody goes to the National Assembly to do the kind of things that disrespect the President and of course abuse the National Assembly.
“We are not going to tolerate that because anyone who wants to see Nigeria progress will continue to ensure that this consultative forum produces the kind of result and outcomes that will make Nigeria better in terms of governance.”
