We’ll work with legislature to strengthen Nigeria’s democracy – Shettima
Vice President-elect, Senator Kashim Shettima says his Principal, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is committed to strengthening Nigeria’s democracy through excellent and effective Executive-Legislature relationship.

Senator Shettima who thanked the legislators for the visit, assured of harmonious working relationship with all stakeholders, noting that the Borno lawmakers have a special place in his heart given their support in tackling Boko Haram and ensuring development whilst he was governor.
“National politics is a different ball game, a delicate office, with a diverse setting, but unity is everything.
“I, therefore, plead with you to continue to give maximum cooperation to our Governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum as he means well for the people, state, and sub-region in our quest for deepened peace in the State and region at large,” Kashim stated.
While thanking the Speaker for his profound leadership, Senator Kashim noted that he was blessed with patience and perseverance. He congratulated all the members for their successes at the recent polls.
Speaking earlier, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Abdulkarim Lawan, who led the delegation, apologized for tarrying a while before the visit, alluding that but for the recent elections, they would have paid the visit earlier.
The Speaker expressed optimism that Nigeria stood to benefit immensely from from the the President-elect and the Vice President-elect’s wealth of experience in public service and thus wished them successs in their bid to serve the nation and humanity.
