Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe, on Sunday says the legislative background of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima heralds improved executive-legislative relations for the country.

 

Buni, in a statement by his Director-General Press and Media Affairs, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed in Damaturu, said the Tinubu administration ”is a meeting point of the executive and legislative arms of government that could fast track development.

 

“Tinubu, Shettima and the SGF, George Akume were former Governors and Senators, while the newly appointed Chief of Staff, Mr Femi Gbajbiamila is the outgoing Speaker of the House of Representatives, making it a unique team.

“Their excellent backgrounds in the executive and legislative arms give them advantage to partner the National Assembly to execute government policies and programmes without or with less confrontation.

“Their backgrounds in public offices have no doubt prepared them for the task of delivering dividends of democracy to Nigerians with ease.

“I congratulate the President for making the right choice, and the new appointees, the Chief of Staff (COS) and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), for the opportunity given to them to serve the country.”

The governor assured the support and co-operation of the government and people of Yobe to the Federal Government led by Tinubu.

Buni solicited the co-operation of all Nigerians to the new administration for a successful take-off to meet the needs and expectations of Nigerians.
