These were some of the words of the lawmakers at an event to mark the second anniversary of the 8th National Assembly.

Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki addressing the lawmakers, however, appreciated them for what he described as an “unflinching support” which they have shown him and the entire Senate.

Stating some key achievements of the Red Chamber, Dr Saraki said: “Over the last two years, we have built a legislature that is genuinely fraternal and conducive for parliamentary business.

“The 8th Senate broke the 12-year jinx on the PIB by passing the Petroleum Industrial Governance Bill.
