A front line rights group, Rising-Up for a United Nigeria (RUN) has commended Senator Abba Moro on his appointment as the Senate Minority Leader in the 10th Senate describing it as well deserved.

In a congratulatory message signed and made available to journalists in Abuja by Amb. Solomon Adodo, National Convener of RUN in Abuja, the group described Abba Moro as a highly experienced politician, a seasoned administrator, and roundly competent legislator, noting that he has all it takes to succeed in his new assignment.

According to the message, “Comrade Abba Moro is a highly distinguished and prolific administrator. His experience as Chairman, Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) and Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have availed him the requisite experience and and exposure needed to excel in every aspect of public governance. We are therefore, confident that he’ll be an invaluable asset to the actualisation of the renewed hope agenda of Mr. President.

“While we acknowledge that Senator Abba Moro is a politician, it is our firm conviction that he will put national interest above partisanship and deliver excellently as he has always done in all his national assignments. Our confidence in his abilities as a patriot are unwavering”.

In the same vein, the group also commended the exemplary leadership of the President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, especially in stabilising the Senate. RUN further maintained that, under Akpabio, the tenth Senate has enjoyed a harmonious working relationship with the executive arm of government for the benefit of Nigerians.

“The Senate under Senator Godswill Akpabio is poised to work for the benefit of Nigerians. The harmonious relationship between the Senate and the Executive has not only paved way for efficient passage of Bills but has also ensured that there is smooth oversight function and efficient policy formulation for the good of Nigerians. This is indeed a pro-people adminstration and it is normal that the Senate is working hand in hand with the Executive”, the statement added.

The group finally urged dissenting Senators and Nigerians who feel dissatisfied with the leadership of the Senate and indeed the adminstration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to “exercise restraint and patience as real and sustained change takes a lot of courage, determination and above all due process to be attained and in the fullness of time, Nigerians will be glad they had progressives as leaders. As for the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, every discerning Nigerian knows that he is a stickler for maintaining Senate rules and upholding the dignity of the legislature. History will judge him favorably”.
