The Senator representing Niger North District, Senator Aliyu Abdullahi, has commended the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, for his broad-mindedness and the non-partisan approach he has adopted in constituting the committees in the legislative house.

Abdullahi in a statement made available to Journalists and signed by two Senators said it took a peace-loving, patriotic and large hearted leader like Saraki to continue to make reconciliatory moves aimed at harmonising all the tendencies in the legislative chamber.

The Lawmaker noted that apart from always reaching out to members of the Unity Group who did not support him during his election, Saraki  has also proved that as a first among equal, it is his responsibility to carry along all Senators, be they members of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC),  or that of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He noted that it was the Senate President’s large heartedness that made him to give the chairmanship of one of the two influential committees that he has constituted so far to a member of the Unity Forum.

Also Senator Jide Omoworare from Osun East, a member of the Unity Forum, was onWednesday named the chairman of the powerful committee on Rules and Business while  Senator Kabiru Marafa, the spokesman of the group, was named a member of the same committee.
