Niger State lawmakers pay courtesy visit to IBB.
One-time military President, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, on Thursday, hosted the Niger State House of Assembly at his Hilltop mansion in Minna, the Niger State capital.
IBB and the lawmakers deliberated for four hours at the private meeting on the state of the nation and on Niger State development.
Addressing the lawmakers, IBB commended them for the visit, adding that he had looked forward to meeting the assembly members.
“I am proud to say that you have been doing well. You are meeting our expectations," Babangida stated.
“We have heard of states lacking synergy among the arms of the government, but in Niger State that should not be your lot.
“Keep a good working relationship between the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. You have been doing this and I want you to keep it up.
The state speaker, Abdullahi Bawa Wuse, while responding to IBB‘s remarks, appreciated the former president for the grand reception accorded the lawmakers.
“We are here to get the blessing of our father; this is because we know your concern and commitment to the development of this state and Nigeria.
“Outside office, you have done more than you did while in office. Your role as a father in the nation has ensured that Nigeria remains indivisible,” Bawa said.
