Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has assured the Igbo social cultural organization – Ohanaeze Ndigbo – that the Senate will ensure that every part of Nigeria is treated fairly and justly.
Lawan made the assertion when the Secretary General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dim Uche Okwukwu, led members of the group on a visit to him in Abuja.
According to a statement by the Special Adviser (Media) to the Senate President, Ola Awoniyi, in Abuja, Lawan said: “I want to assure you that the Senate will always stand by National interest.
“We believe in the unity and the need for every ethnic group, every religious persuasion to have a very fair deal within the country.
“We will work with your representatives from the South East, particularly from Igbo land. We will do everything to support them and they are representing you very well in the Senate.”
The Senate President said notwithstanding their different political platforms, the national interest has remained their guiding principle in the National Assembly.
The Senate President assured his guests that the federal lawmakers would always support what would give them the kind of inclusion and sense of belonging in the Southeast.
