The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, said Nigeria achieved a feat in 24 years that took the United States to achieve in 185 years.

Akpabio said the former lawmakers run the cadres, cordial relations between both arms are mandatory, but also they will walk hand in hand and look into the eyes.
Akpabio said: “Mr. President, the United States has started democracy for about 247 years. But only when it celebrated its 185th anniversary did it succeed in producing former Senators John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson as presidents and Vice Presidents, respectively.
“But within 24 years of our democracy, we have achieved what has taken the United States for 185 years to achieve.
“We have not only 2 former prominent Senators who have served as President and Vice President of our dear country, but also other graduates of this congress are also in positions of public trust, like the head of the Federal Government, Senator George Acme, the Chief of Staff of the President, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gababiamira, and other senators in the Cabinet.
The President, a prominent and honorable member, maintains a cordial relationship with the executive department has always been a requirement of the law, but now our old boy is now an executive.
“There have never been so many bridges and junctions between these 2 governments.
“So we will continue to walk hand in hand and see the executive arm and eye to eye, while ensuring that checks and balances are observed in the priority public interest as enshrined in the principle of separation of powers as well as our Constitution.”
