The President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has solicited the co-operation of members of the 8th National Assembly in the  battle against daunting challenges facing the country.

Buhari spoke at the induction of  new legislators of the National Assembly  organised by the National Institute of Legislative Studies  in Abuja on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.

“For a president to be successful in addressing community development and general welfare of the various people of the country, he or she would benefit from working closely and in harmony with the legislative arm of government.

“I therefore commit myself to working with the legislature as development partners motivated by the desire to deliver good governance.

“I am here today, to invite you to work with the executive as partners in progress, as champions of good governance and development and as warriors for change.

“Together, we can make this nation great and as a role model in Africa and other emerging economies and democracies,” he stated.
