The Senate Majority Leader, Ahmed Lawan, insisted that the National Assembly must be reconvened before next week Sallah holiday.
“We are insisting that the National Assembly must be reconvened quickly so that we settle the issues of INEC budget, foreign loans and 2018 budget virement. To do otherwise means sabotaged. If we fail to pass the budget, it will serve the PDP very well, but it could spark a serious constitutional crisis. The country would be shut down.
“I am sure this a season of regrets because those who have left APC are full of regrets. They are not finding it easy with their new parties.
“Every member here has faced one issue or the other, especially with their state governors. We urge you to intervene very quickly and reconcile all the issues before we go into primary elections.
“We really appreciate your moves so far, and we urge you to carry it to the last. Your word of promise to reward our loyalty to the party. We need ourselves to be together. So we all must accommodate each other.”
For the Deputy Speaker, Yussuff Lasun and the House Leader Femi Gbajabiamila thanked the APC National Chairman for the word of assurance that the party will reward their loyalty.
