Lawan tasks opposition parties to support incoming govt

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has urged opposition political parties to team up with the incoming government of the All Progressives Congress to take Nigeria to the next level of development.

Lawan said that with the conclusion of the general elections, it was time for governance which is for everyone.

The Senate President spoke in Abuja on Friday while receiving a delegation of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States led by its Secretary General, Georges Chikoti.

Lawan told his guests that they came at a time Nigeria was going through a transition but assured them that the transition from one government to a new government on May 29, 2023 would not be an issue for the organisation.

He added, “I will use this opportunity to call on all opposition in Nigeria to team up with our new administration for the development of our country. Elections are over and what is left is governance and governance is for everybody.

“What is necessary, what is critical today is how we can come together as a people regardless of our political platforms to ensure that our country is taking to the next level of development.”
