The Senate on Wednesday held a valedictory session to mark the exit of three members of the upper chamber.

The members include the new Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the Deputy National Chairman (North), Abubakar Kyari, and Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Senator Hassan Muhammad Nasiha.

The session which started at 11:45am ended at 1:58pm.

The session commenced with a presentation from the Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi (Kebbi North).

He congratulated the former lawmakers on their recent attainments.

Lawmakers took turns to speak glowingly about the three former Senators at the session.

The Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (Abia South), urged the new National Chairman of the APC to deepen democracy in the discharge of his duties.

Adamu Aliero (Kebbi Central), commended Senator Adamu for laying the foundation of Nasarawa State and strides in developing the education sector.

He noted that as the first Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Senator Adamu was able to ensure harmony among members irrespective of diverse political persuasion.

According to him, the new National Chairman contributed to the growth of Agriculture in Nigeria as Chairman of the Farmer’s Association of Nigeria and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development.

Aliero added that the Deputy National Chairman (North), Abubakar Kyari, on the other hand, recorded a long history of service with impeccable legislative achievements as Chairman of the Senate Committee on INEC and FCT.

Senator Orji Uzor Kalu (Abia North), urged Senator Abdullahi Adamu to bring his wealth of experience as former Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum to bear on the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Senator Danjuma Goje (Gombe Central), described Senator Adamu as eminently qualified to lead the ruling APC to victory in 2023.

He observed that it was the first time that members of the Senate were elevated to serve in higher capacities.

James Manager (Delta South), urged the National Chairman to maintain “Senatorial integrity” in service to Nigerians, adding that doing so would boost confidence in members of the National Assembly.

On his part, Senator Ali Ndume (Borno South), urged the National Chairman and his Deputy to protect the sanctity of the National Assembly, as it is the most vulnerable arm of government.

A frontline aspirant for the National Chairmanship position, Senator Sani Musa (Niger East), said the emergence of Senator Adamu as APC National Chairman was the best decision made by the All Progressives Congress.

“We will stand by him, work with him and do all the foot soldiering to see that he succeeds”, he said.

Senator Albert Bassey Akpan (Akwa-Ibom North East) said, “Senator Adamu is a man you can trust any day. I am confident that APC which we thought was almost gone has got it right.

“I am confident that Baba Adamu will do the right thing. We will miss him.

Senator Smart Adeyemi (Kogi West), said, “Senator Adamu is a political textbook of contemporary Nigeria.

“He is patriotic and God fearing. Each time he speaks here, he speaks from the position of the law.

“I served in his Committee on Agriculture. You’ll know he is a believer in the rule of law. He is a no-nonsense man.

“Your (Adamu’s) emergence is a pointer that more people from the other side, from the body language, are willing to come back.

“He is a good man with a large heart who is a team player.”

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in his contribution,  described the emergence of four members (serving and former) of the National Assembly as party executives of the APC was a remarkable development in the political evolution and history of Nigeria.
