Be patient with laws you dislike, Buhari tells Nigerians

President Buhari on Monday urged Nigerians to be patient with any law of the land they had misgivings about.

He asked that such aggrieved Nigerians should “engage the process in line with democratic practices.”

Buhari made his position known in his remarks at the opening of the two-day joint executive-legislative leadership retreat with the theme, ‘Promoting effective executive-legislative partnership, finding a middle ground’, held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Buhari said the process of law making and governance was dynamic and evolving.

He said, “Let me also remind our common patriots, gentlemen and women, that the process of law making and governance is dynamic and ever evolving.

“I will seek their indulgence to be patient with any legislation or law which they have certain misgivings about and engage the process in line with democratic practices.

“Our interest is sincere promotion of our collective will and aspiration to build a nation where justice, peace, and progress are the norm.”

Buhari said the principle of separation of powers as enshrined in the Constitution was designed to enable all arms of government to work together in cooperative and collaborative manner, through executive and legislative engagements.

He said the collaboration had made it easier for the government to set and realise development goals, and respond to changes in the economy faster like the coronavirus pandemic that necessitated the review of the 2020 budget.
