Tambuwal exits Seventh National Assembly

In his speech, he said the poor relationship between the executive arm and the legislature diverted the House’s attention many times. which caused the nation a lot of embarrassment.
Tambuwal proudly said that the Seventh Assembly he presided over was not soiled with allegations of corruption except in a couple of cases, out of which only one is yet to be given a clean bill.
He said, “I must say that the frosty relationship between the executive and Seventh House was an unnecessary distraction and a source of embarrassment to the nation. It is unwarranted that a ruling party with clear majority boxed itself into that situation. If the executive fails to recognize the independence of the legislature and expects that it is a rubber stamp then frosty relation is bound to follow."
Tambuwal emerged winner of the Sokoto State governorship election in the April 11 gubernatorial poll in the country.
