Abuja - The Friends in the Gap Advocacy Initiative (FGAI), a legislative advocacy, monitoring and lobby group, has congratulated the recently-elected President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
“It is our position that your election is very well deserved, and it reflects the wishes and aspirations of Nigerians, as well as in line with the general change mantra that most Nigerians crave,” the organisation stated.
“We also believe that your tenure will usher in a new Senate, which will deepen legislative independence and continually hold the executive arm of Government accountable to the Nigerian people. On our part as a civil society organisation, we extend our hands of fellowship and promise our cooperation with your administration.”
