The Speaker said it was good that both parties in the Bauchi State House of Assembly were able to come together to move the state forward.
“We are here simply to pay a condolence visit to the family of one of our own, who has been an integral part of the 9th Assembly from inception or even before inception Honourable Soro.
“When we heard of the incident, just hours ago, it was incumbent upon us to come and visit the family. We will proceed from here to the family house.
“But, we felt it was an important opportunity as well, which we should never let pass apart from protocol to pay a courtesy visit, to also share with you our gladness and happiness to the fact that I see that the seeming crisis that almost engulfed the state some couple of months ago, has now been resolved.
“I’m also happy that it wasn’t without the intervention of the House of Representative. I want to encourage your Excellency that you are doing wonderfully well, so far in terms of how you have been able to carry all your members along and the whole state.
“But, I’m encouraged that the spirits that we in the national- House of Representatives, 9th Assembly have carried on, on the platform of a joint task, between all parties and all tendencies, that you do the same. I’m happy, I’m glad to see that that is happening already in Bauchi State.
“Governance is not for one person or one party; governance is all about everybody, not just doing the political parties, but even the people,” the Speaker said.
