The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to tolerate members of the National Assembly and see them as his children.
He said this when a delegation of lawmakers paid Buhari sallah homage at Aso Rock.
Represented by the Deputy Senate Leader, Bala Na’Allah, Saraki said since the return to democracy in 1999, no president has received support from the National Assembly like Buhari.
He assured the President that the National Assembly will continue to support the president.
He said, “Mr President, I have the authority of each and every member of the senate and the house of representatives to wish you a blessed Eid-el-Fitr.
“And I have the authority of each and every one of us to equally pledge our loyalty and commitment to work with you for the betterment of this country and to wish you more strength; to wish you more health and most importantly Mr President to add additional degree of tolerance for you so that you tolerate us as your children.
“Mr President, let me seize this opportunity to say, for the record, that from 1999, when we started our democratic experience till date, no president and I repeat, `no president and I say for the third time, no president has received this amount of cooperation from the national assembly like you contrary to what is outside there.”
