President Buhari noted the contributions of Sen. Lawan to the political and economic development of the country, starting out as a lecturer, before accepting to serve his constituency as a legislator.

The statement said the President believes the Senate President’s visionary leadership style, with a strong penchant for always finding a common ground with the Executive arm of Government, has been most rewarding for the country, especially in passage of bills that directly impact on the livelihood of the people.

It added that as the leader of the National Assembly turns 63, President Buhari prayed for his good health, strength and more wisdom to guide the affairs of the Senate.

He said the Senate President has been consistent in championing the enactment of laws and oversight functions that will engender rapid growth and development of the Nation.

The NCGF chairman prayed Allah to continue to guide and protect the Senate President, give him more strength, wisdom as well as good health to continue to provide the right leadership that would strengthen the nation’s democracy.
