10th Assembly: Be fair, just in selection of principal officers – Makinde tell NASS members


Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has urged members of the 10th National Assembly to be fair and just in the selection of their principal officers.

Makinde noted that the election of the leadership of the Senate in particular, must be based on the principles of fairness, justice and equity.

He made these declarations on Monday in Ibadan, the state capital.

Makinde spoke at a post-inauguration special thanksgiving service organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Fathers of Faith.

DAILY POST gathered that the 10th National Assembly has been billed for inauguration this week. 

The principal officers of the National Assembly are to be elected after the inauguration.

Makinde, while speaking, said that he will be at the National Assembly tomorrow (Tuesday).

He added that he will be there in order to ensure that the principles of fairness, justice and equity prevail.

“We already have a president who is of Islamic faith, we have a vice president who is of Islamic faith, number three is going to be the senate president.

“And what we are saying across party lines, I am saying it publicly, all the governors in Nigeria came together and we said we would support the choice of the president, who is a Christian from the South-South region of Nigeria.

“So, I will be at the National Assembly tomorrow, even though I wasn’t elected as a Senator and I have never been elected as one, I will be there with my other colleagues, we will go and ensure that the principle of fairness, justice and equity prevails in the selection of the president of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
