It was reported that the President Elect, Mohammadu Buhari, on Wednesday reiterated his readiness to work with any leader of the National Assembly, who emerges, irrespective of which part of the country he or she comes from.
This was contained in a statement by his media team in Abuja.
It quoted Buhari, who is currently on a private visit to the United Kingdom, as saying that the clarification became necessary in view of the continued name-dropping in some circles linking him to some candidates.
Buhari said, “I am prepared to work with any leaders that the House (of Representatives) or Senate selects.”
The President-Elect had, in an earlier statement issued about two weeks ago, said, “It doesn’t matter who the person is or where he or she is from.”
He went on to add that “there is due process for the selection of leaders of the National Assembly and I will not interfere in that process.”
Buhari added that the media and the public should begin to get used to no more “business as usual.”
