Dino Melaye, the senator who represents Kogi West at the National Assembly, told the new Senate president, Ahmed Lawan, on Wednesday what to do for Nigeria.
He commissioned Lawan to make Nigeria more important than his party: the Congress of All Progressives, APC.
Melaye made the call congratulating Lawan for her appearance as president of the 9th Senate of the Assembly.
In a tweet, Melaye wrote: “Congratulations once again Senator Ahmed Lawal. Make Nigeria more important and above APC.”
Lawan, the Senator representing Yobe North had emerged Senate President yesterday after defeating his rival, Senator Ali Ndume.
The Yobe lawmaker was declared winner of the election to the office of the Senate Presidency of the 9th National Assembly after he polled the highest number of votes.
This followed a hitch-free election on Tuesday at the inauguration of the 9th National Assembly.
The election, which was presided by Mohammed Ataba-Omolori, saw the Yobe Senator scoring 79 votes after ballots sorting.
