Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has assured that the party would waste no time with sorting out the issue of those who will occupy the remaining principal offices at the National Assembly.

Adamu, who disclosed this on Tuesday evening while speaking to newsmen at the State Hiyse, Abuja, after a closed-door meeting with President Bola Tinubu, also disclosed that the process that produced the leadership of the 10th National Assembly had left the party with some lessons. 

He attributed the successful inauguration of the 10th Assembly and the election of the preferred candidates of the party into leadership of the two chambers to thorough consultations and giving respect to those who deserved it.

Answering question of how the party managed to have its preferred choices elected, Adamu said “Very thorough consultations and respect for all those who deserve respect, this is what took us through this very important step in the important arm of government. 

“For people who don’t know, for people who are into constitutional law, the legislature is the first estate and no government can claim to be stable without ensuring that the National Assembly is in state and that’s what we’ve achieved today.

“It wasn’t easy coming to this point, but we thank God almighty that so much has been done and so much lessons have been learned in the course of this endeavour. There’s time for everything and God is the giver of power and influence, God has chosen the gentlemen today; President of the Senate and Deputy President of the Senate and the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the two chambers of the National Assembly.

“What is now left for us, as a party, is to sit and determine the remaining members of the …Each of these principal officers has got a deputy and of course the Majority Leader of each of the chambers. 

“We’re going to sit over this and we want to believe that we’re going to waste no time whatsoever, we’ll come up with what we’ll give the President to get his buy-in before it’s made public or before it goes to the National Assembly. This day is very historic”.

He expressed belief that the leadership of the Assembly would do well and will work to meet the yearnings and aspirations of the people of the country.

Meanwhile, the APC Chairman has hailed President Tinubu’s signing of the Student Loan Bill into law, describing it as “an extremely positive step”.

According to him, the new law would go a very long way to alleviate the burdens of indigent students in their quest for acquiring education.

“This law is virtually guaranteeing every child of this country an opportunity to get good education. We support it and we stand with the President shoulder to shoulder in ensuring that its implementation becomes easy”, he said.
