“I want to also urge you to tell your members,
particularly in this time of change that we have
all fought hard for the change that ushered in
the new government during the last elections,
that we must change from the way things were
done in the past. We must avoid bureaucratic
delays, we must avoid inefficiency and we must
shun corrupt practices.
“These things are important. It is important for
us to accept that things cannot be done the
way it used to be. We will do our best to give
you conducive and enabling environment so
that the hardship that some of you are going
through will be reduced and in return, we will
expect productivity, we will expect that things
are done differently” Saraki said.
The Senate President added that the 8th Senate
is determined to work hard and that the
unalloyed support of the workers is needed to
enable it succeed.
He added: “More importantly, please go back
and charge your colleagues that we must work
very hard to bring result to the great people of
Nigeria that are yearning for change and as you
do that, I am sure that what you need for your
own welfare will be addressed.”
Earlier, Chairman of the National Assembly
branch of PASAN, Comrade Bature Musa, said
the emergence of Saraki as the Senate President
has been of great blessing to all members of

He specifically thanked the Senate President for
his kind gesture towards the Muslim members
of the association during the Ramadan fast and
urged him to extend same to the Christian
members during their festivities.
Musa said: “It is important to note that what
you have started here can change the nation
because when you change the life of one
person, you have changed the life of a family.
“Imagine your Excellency, when you change the
lives of every family in the National Assembly,
you have changed the entire life of a nation
because the National Assembly as an arm of
the government is the only organization that
has full representative of every unit, ward and
constituencies across the country living under
one roof.”
