Akpabio Assures Favourable Environment for Nigerians, Business Community.

The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has assured Nigerians and the international business community that the 10th National Assembly is prepared to collaborate with the administration of President Bola Tinubu in order to ensure a conducive business environment and improve the quality of life of all Nigerians.

Akpabio gave the assurance in his goodwill message at the reception dinner held in honour of Senator George Akume, the newly appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) at the Transcorp Hotel in Abuja on Saturday.

Senator Akpabio said he believed strongly that Nigerians were in for the best of times under this administration as according to him, members of the National Assembly would enjoy a lot of cooperation and support from the executive arm because for the first time, there was going to be a very serious accord between the executive and the legislature, saying, “I see good things coming for Nigerians.”

Speaking further, Akpabio observed that in less than 20 days in office, the stock market had gone up allover the world, adding that the world was already applauding Nigeria.

“I believe strongly that Senator Akume has a hand in most of the policies that are coming out and you are just starting. You can imagine the celebrations that would come again, in the first 100 days of this administration in office. You are indeed a square peg in a square hole.”, he said.

The Senate President went further: “We are celebrating two things tonight; excellence and humility. You are a man of excellence. You leave your mark in everything you do and I have no doubt you are going to leave your mark in the present administration of President Tinubu. Your humility disarms all”, he declared.

Akpabio said the 10th Senate would work seamlessly with Senator Akume as the SGF to develop policies that would change the economic situation in the country.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, in his message he noted that Senator Akume had a proven track record in coordinating government activities and stringing government while the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, described Akume as a welfarist who puts the needs of others first.
His appointment, Bello noted, was an evidence of efficient representation of the North-Central in President Tinubu’s administration.

In his response, the SGF thanked all the dignitaries for their goodwill messages, assuring Nigerians that he would do his best and not disappoint President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the APC.
