The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has called on opposition parties to work with the incoming government of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima for the development of Nigeria. 

In a meeting with the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), Lawan stressed the importance of support for the new administration to deliver on its promises. 

He commended the OACPS Secretary General, Georges Robelo Pinto Chikoti, for his work in ensuring the organization remains effective and efficient. 

Lawan also emphasized the need for Africa and Pacific countries to form partnerships in trade and other vital areas. 

The call for opposition parties to team up with the new administration comes as the country approaches the end of President Muhammadu Buhari's tenure.


Lawan urged all Nigerians to come together to ensure the country moves forward in development. 

During the meeting on Friday, the Senate president said: “By the 29th of May this year, our president, current president, and current administration would have finished his tenure but we will have another administration coming and that is not going to be an issue because it is a government that is being replaced by another government from the same political party.

“And of course here in Nigeria, so far, the opposition has been very supportive. 

"The minority leader is here. 

"We have enjoyed very excellent relationship in the parliament.


“We work for our country regardless of our political platforms and I will take this opportunity to call on all opposition in Nigeria to team up with our new administration for the development of our country.

“Elections are over and what is left is governance and governance is for everybody. 

"What is necessary, what is very critical and important today is how we are able to come together as a people regardless of our political platforms to ensure that our country is taking to the next level of development.”
