N/Assembly elections healthy for democracy – PDP Govs’ Forum

Coordinator of the Forum, Earl Osaro Onaiwu, said in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday that the emergence of Senators Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu as president and deputy of the 8th Senate respectively, was an indication that Nigeria’s democracy was on track.
Onaiwu congratulated Yakubu Dogara on his emergence as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, as well as his deputy Yusuf Lasun.
The PDP governors hailed the courage and unity of purpose demonstrated by the lawmakers in appointing their leader, stressing that it demonstrates their respect for the constitution which does not recognise party imposition.
“We charge all members of the National Assembly to continue to uphold the tenets of democracy and enforce the constitutionally-vested parliamentary roles expected of them,” the statement said.
