Senate President Godswill Akpabio says the performance of senators in the 10th assembly has raised the expectations of Nigerians.

Mr Akpabio, who said this at plenary on Tuesday while welcoming senators back from their Christmas break, urged them to close ranks and work for the nation’s good.

” We must traverse uncharted territory, break new ground, and find the building blocks needed to create a great and united country,” said Mr Akpabio. “These blocks are courage, unity, integrity, and strategy.”

He maintained that the duty of lawmakers was to address Nigeria’s challenges, adding, “History and future generations will not forgive us if we squander this opportunity or fail to leave our mark on the annals of time.”

Mr Akpabio also urged senators to use their time in the chamber to engage in respectful debates and craft legislation that reflects Nigerians’ needs and aspirations.

“In the coming months, we will face a multitude of challenges, from economic recovery and healthcare reform to national security and social justice,” the Senate president noted.

He urged the senators to continue to work and collaborate with the executive under President Bola Tinubu’s leadership without compromising their independence as enshrined in the constitution.

“Our purpose should be twofold: to do as much good as we can to all the people we can and to prevent any injustices from befalling anyone in our great nation, for injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

“As we embark on this new legislative session, let us be inspired by the limitless potential of what we can achieve together.

“Let us remember that the work we do here has the power to transform lives, uplift communities, and shape the destiny of our great nation and the fortunes of our continent,” he said.

Mr Akpabio also appealed to the lawmakers to be committed and steadfast in their dedication to good governance and democracy.

“Together, let us strive for excellence, serve with integrity, and leave a lasting legacy of progress for future generations.

“Let this 10th Assembly be a reference point in legislation, a testament to our collective dedication and vision,” Mr Akpabio added.
