APC will fill remaining National Assembly principal offices soon – Party chairman

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has indicated that the ruling party would as soon as possible fill the remaining key offices in the National Assembly.

Adamu, who made the remark after meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, told reporters that the process that produced the leadership of the 10th National Assembly had taught the party some lessons.

He ascribed the successful swearing-in of the 10th National Assembly and the election of the party’s favored candidates to leadership positions in both chambers to thorough deliberations and appreciation for those who deserved it.

Responding to the question on how the party got its preferred choices elected, Adamu said: “Very thorough consultations and respect for all those who deserve respect; this is what took us through this very important step in the important arm of government.

“For people who don’t know, for people who are into constitutional law, the legislature is the first estate and no government can claim to be stable without ensuring that the National Assembly is in state and that’s what we’ve achieved today.

“It wasn’t easy coming to this point, but we thank God almighty that so much has been done and so much lessons have been learned in the course of this endeavour.

“There’s time for everything and God is the giver of power and influence, God has chosen the gentlemen today; President of the Senate and Deputy President of the Senate and the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the two chambers of the National Assembly.

“What is now left for us, as a party, is to sit and determine the remaining members of the …Each of these principal officers has got a deputy and of course the Majority Leader of each of the chambers.

“We’re going to sit over this and we want to believe that we’re going to waste no time whatsoever; we’ll come up with what we’ll give the President to get his buy-in before it’s made public or before it goes to the National Assembly. This day is very historic”, he said.
