Ahmad Lawan: Why I did not become senate president in 2015
Ahmad Lawan, the president of Nigerian senate has revealed why he did not occupy the position in 2015.
This revelation was made by the senate president while addressing newsmen during his 62nd birthday anniversary in Abuja on Tuesday January 12.
Lawan said he never occupied the position because it was not God’s time.
Lawan further stated that he worked with former senate president Bukola Saraki for the good of Nigerians in spite of losing out.
“In 2015, you will recall when I wanted to be senate president, and God in his wisdom decided, No. You are not going to be. Someone else will be. Then of course senator Saraki became the president of the senate.
“We believe in God. We worked together in the senate for the benefit of our people and when in 2019, God said it is time, guess what? 109 senators have the same mindset, the same attitudinal disposition to making Nigeria better, to working with the executive arm of government for the betterment of our country.”
Lawan also averred that the senate under his leadership and national assembly at large have discharged their duties very well.
“This is an opportunity for me to commend very distinguished senators for being very patriotic all through to ensure that the last one and half years of our activities in the senate, the senate has introduced so much good things into the system.”
